Tedeschi - Amarone Riserva 'Monte Olmi' 2013 750ml
2013 Amarone della Valpolicella DOC Classico Riserva 750ml
Tedeschi specializes in making wines of longevity. Amarone is one of the most labour-intensive fine wines in the world, and winemaker Riccardo Tedeschi and his family set a benchmark example in Valpolicella.
Monte Olmi is the flagship wine of the Tedeschi family and has been a Grand Cru since 1964.
The traditional grapes of Valpolicella are dried in special drying rooms for about four months, where the grapes lose about 30% of their weight before they are gently pressed, and the wine ages for three years before bottling.
Amarone is a very unique wine made with grapes that are especially suited to the drying and ageing process, making it one of the most long-lived wines in the world.
