Monte Olmi is the name of the vineyard purchased by Lorenzo Tedeschi in 1918 that is situated in Pedemonte in the community of San Pietro in Cariano in the heart of Valpolicella Classica.
The vineyard extends over 2,5 hectares, has a southwest exposure, and is planted on “marogne”or dry stone wall terraces. The steep slope ensures good drainage in case of heavy rains, while the depth and predominantly clay structure help retain moisture during periods of drought.
The terrain, which is of morainic origin, is by its nature marly limestone. Clay and calcium are present in equal measures, both of which favor a robust structure and good color intensity.
The type of plantation is traditional pergola with a low density equal to 3,500 plants per hectare, and a production yield equal to 6,000 kg/hectare.
The grapes selected from this vineyard are destined for the production of Capitel Monte Olmi Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG Classico Riserva.
