"Capitel San Rocco" Valpolicella Ripasso DOC Superiore 2019 - Tedeschi

Capitel San Rocco is a Valpolicella Ripasso DOC Superiore, offered by Tedeschi. It is produced from selected grapes in the Marne Bianche vineyard of the Maternigo Estate. Obtained according to the ancient Ripasso technique, i.e. the re-fermentation of a part of Valpolicella wine, produced in October, on Amarone and Recioto marc, this Capitel San Rocco is an elegant and complex wine, round but dry. The complex blend of grapes comprises 30% Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella to which equal parts of Rossignola, Oseleta, Negrara and Dindarella are added. Harvested between the end of September and the beginning of October, in February, at the end of the first vinification process, the wine is slowly fermented for a further 8/10 days on the spent marc of Amarone and Recioto. This is followed by a period of maturation in Slavonian oak barrels that can last up to two years and at least 6 months of bottle ageing. Ruby red in colour, clear and transparent, the nose reveals a broad and complex bouquet, with notes of cherry, raspberry and redcurrant. In the mouth it is pleasantly fruity, well balanced and structured. Alcohol and acidity are in good harmony. Warm and round, it is a fabulous wine for long ageing. Well stored, in the dark in the cellar, it is able to evolve without problems even for 12 or 15 years. Waiting, of course, for the right occasion to uncork it and pair it with red meat dishes, game or mature cheeses.

The Tedeschi winery is located in the centre of Pedemonte, in the heart of Valpolicella Classica. Always committed to the development of their vineyard, they were among the first to vinify grapes from individual plots separately. Huge investments have been made over the years in the vinification area, precisely to optimise the fermentation activities of the different vineyards. For the delicate phase of maturation, then, the winery equipped itself with Slavonian oak barrels, with capacities ranging from 1000 to 5000 litres. Finally, between 1995 and 2005, Tedeschi started an important study to control the grapes during the drying phase. This allowed them to build a modern fruit cellar, capable of ensuring the integrity of the grapes during the entire processing cycle, thanks to careful control of the humidity in the environment and regular ventilation. However, so much effort and attention has paid off. Over the years, in fact, the Tedeschi winery has won numerous prizes and awards from the strictest wine critics, in Italy and abroad.
