Label

 

The composition of the land is one the factors that can influence the aroma of a wine. Well aware of this fact, and in true pioneering spirit, the Tedeschi family undertook an aromatic characterization study of their vineyards in collaboration with Professor Ugliano of the University of Verona. The individuation of four olfactory dimensions that characterize the wines of Valpolicella (fruity, balsamic, spicy/pepper, spicy sweet) has allowed us to have a greater understanding of our territory as well as given us the ability to take the best advantage of every single parcel of vineyard used. The objective remains the celebration of our territory giving the deserved dignity to Valpolicella and its products.
For the label, Tedeschi has chosen to represent graphically the aroma of the wine. The symbol shown on this label is the cherry because Valpolicella wines produced from fresh grapes, especially when cultivated on land of alluvial origin with a gravel base, have a rich aroma of red fruit.
