LA FABRISERIA VALPOLICELLA DOC

CLASSICO SUPERIORE

The Tedeschi family has endeavored to improve the quality of its wines and to accentuate the relationship between the traditional vines and the region. For this reason, Rosso La Fabriseria, a wine created with an international style has been completely re- conceptualized and today is being introduced to the wine drinking audience as a wine that is coherent with the rest of our production and completely rooted in the Valpolicella region. The grape selection consists of Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and a small percentage of Oseleta. The grapes come from La Fabriseria vineyard within the Valpolicella Classica Region (Sant’Ambrogio and Fumane communes) and are left to over ripen on the vine. The wine yield per hectare is very low and does not exceed that of the Amarone wine. The wine is age exclusively in Slovenian oak barrels. The Valpolicella La Fabriseria is today a great and important Valpolicella wine and represents yet another wine that the Tedeschi family entrusts to tell the world the story of this splendid region.

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.
