MARNE 180 AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA DOCG

About the name “Marne 180”: marne means marl, the variety of soil on which we’ve planted our vineyards; 180 are the degrees of exposure of our vineyards, from south-west to south-east. This wine is made from grapes harvested in various vineyards located on hills in the Valpolicella area. Different sources and different grape varieties are important to obtain a well-balanced wine with the fine structure that only a few single areas in the Valpolicella zone can provide.

Label

 

The restyling of the label of the Amarone Docg required two phases to reach the version that was released in 2015.
The name “Marne 180” recalls the value of the terroir, which is fundamental in the production of high quality Amarone. Marne (Marl) is the type of terrain on which proprietary vineyards have been planted (hillside clay limestone terrain, rich in skeleton), and 180 represents the degrees of sun exposure of the vineyards (from southwest to southeast).
After the careful selection of the grapes, another fundamental step for the conception of a Great Amarone is drying. The Tedeschi Family carries out this step in its own new generation fruit loft that is controlled for temperature and humidity. Drying has become emblematic for this wine and since the 2011 vintage has been symbolically captured on the label.
The symbol that the Tedeschi came up with is made up of two spherical elements, which represent the concentrated berry that has been transformed into its true quintessence, and an empty space. The space corresponds to the 3-4 month period in which the grape is concentrated. After this passage of time, the grape has been permanently changed, and the wine that is born from it is no ordinary red wine. It will become an Amarone, a significant and concentrated wine that will have the indelible principal perfumes of the typical Valpolicella grape. With this label, Tedeschi has chosen to celebrate the small miracle of grape drying, which year after year gives life to the great Amarone wines of the Tedeschi family.
The label style with its epigraphic layout and calligraphy font from the geographic region underscores the elegance recognized in this product of excellence.
