LA FABRISERIA AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA DOCG

CLASSICO RISERVA

This Amarone was born of the passion Renzo Tedeschi had for good wine – as an authentic expression of the territory – and of his determination to create something unique. It is produced from a selection of grapes from the Fabriseria vineyard on the hills of Valpolicella Classica between the communities of Fumane and Sant’Ambrogio di Valpolicella.
As always, the goal we are reaching for is to obtain a wine with great structure, characterized by an aromatic elegance that allows for the continued and progressive appreciation of the wine during its evolution. The privilege of making one wait: from 1983 until today only a few vintages have been produced, all of which started out as exceptional and distinctive at harvest and then again after vinification.
Character and personality as expressions of a powerful territory.

Label

 

The brand “La Fabriseria” pays homage to grandfather, Riccardo, who was a member of the Fabbriceria, the council of the Catholic Church, created to coordinate the construction of a new church in the village. The meetings were usually closed with a tasting of the best wines produced by the council members (fabbriceri). Now, that moment used to seal a pact, has become the name and symbol (the cross) of two important Tedeschi wines: the Amarone DOC Classico and the Valpolicella DOC Classico Superiore.
Two crosses of probable Celtic origin are also found in the vineyard Le Pontare di Sant’Ambrogio, purchased by the family in 2000 and dedicated to the production of these two wines.
The crosses served as signposts for the faithful, indicating the way to a sanctuary. Ancient lore says that Dante was among the faithful making the pilgrimage. The new label design comprises two crosses, one that completely encloses the bottle, and the other which is centered on the label in memory of the Fabbriceria.
