CAPITEL SAN ROCCO VALPOLICELLA RIPASSO DOC

SUPERIORE

The wine is produced with grapes selected in the Marne biance vineyard in Maternigo estate. The wine is obtained according to the ancient technique of Ripasso, in other words, though the refermentation of one part of Valpolicella wine produced in October on the marc of Amarone and Recioto.
This is an elegant wine that is complex and reflects the style of the family. It is round, but dry, and is a great protagonist of the territory that expresses its worth full heartedly. It is suitable for aging and for food pairings.

Label

 

The brand Capitel was conceived in the early 70’s to identify a “cru” or a particular “selection” in honor of the popular traditions of Valpolicella. The “Capitel,’”which can be traced back to a monument dedicated to Saint Rocco, represents the custodian of the harvest from the fields of Valpolicella. It is an ancient propitiatory symbol that vintners have taken from popular beliefs, and which has been used to protect the harvest across the vagaries of time. Over the years, the Capitel has become the trademark on all Tedeschi products.
The Valpolicella Ripasso DOC Superiore has a label that highlights the Tedeschi style composed of tradition, simplicity, and innovation. The wine has been in production since 1976 but has been a wine of denomination of origin only since 2010.
A new logotype was conceived that accentuates the symbol of San Rocco and the shell, which has always been associated with this saint. The elegant golden shell, which recalls the saint’s pilgrimage to Santiago, is repeated four times to form a majestic and important cross-like image that underscores the greatness of the wine.
