OUR WINES WIN OVER MONICA LARNER
Our wines have won over noted journalist, Monica Larner, reviewer for the prestigious magazine, The Wine Advocate RobertParker.com .
Upon tasting the Capitel San Rocco Valpolicella Ripasso DOC Superiore, Monica wrote “The winemaking team at Tedeschi always does fantastic work.”
We are thrilled by these comments as well as by the results obtained! All wines that were tasted received a score of between 91 and 95 points.
Our flagship wine, Capitel Monte Olmi Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG Classico Riserva 2016, was awarded the highest score of 95 points, which represents a particularly high score for the wines of Valpolicella. Monica describes the wine as: One of the top wines in the Tedeschi portfolio, the 2016 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva Capitel Monte Olmi brings the intensity threshold up significantly in terms of fruit weight, power, and alcohol (measured at 17% here). Dark fruit and plum are folded into candied fruit and cherry liqueur. The tannins are present, for sure, but expertly integrated to show no bitterness or astringency. In fact, the mouthfeel is probably the best and most unique feature of this wine.
Here are the other scores.
Maternigo Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG Riserva 2016 – 94 points “No doubt, the intensity is there, but the wine is actually quite balanced and even-keeled. It never feels too heavy or dense.“
Capitel Fontana Recioto della Valpolicella DOCG 2018 – 93 points “This is a pretty Recioto.“
Marne 180 Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG 2018 – 93 points “You get aromas of dried plum and prune with plenty of generous spice and tarry smoke, but what stands out most are those dried herbal tones.”
Ansari Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG 2017 – 92 points
La Fabriseria Valpolicella DOC Classico Superiore 2019 – 92 points
Maternigo Valpolicella DOC Ripasso Superiore 2019 – 91 points
Capitel San Rocco Valpolicella DOC Ripasso 2018 – 91 points
