WE 93, James Suckling 92.
Tedeschi sits amongst the elite of the Amarone producers. The family has had a working connection with the wines of Valpolicella for more than 4 centuries. The house style is always one of richness and big structure, approachable now but equally capable of lasting a very long time indeed. This wine has not as yet been rated by the gurus so we have reproduced the winery tasting note below (the 2010 vintage was rated 94 by both WA and JS):
Color: strong ruby red. Clear and transparent.
Bouquet: notes of vanilla and ethereal airs depending on the period of aging in the barrel; notes of sweet fruits such as currants, blueberries, cherries depending on the varieties of grapes.
Flavor: wine with a velvety, raisiny character combined with the structure and typical stylish bitterness to give it good balance. It has an enduring and persistent flavour.
Suited for ageing: it is a keeping wine.
Combinations: red meat and aged cheeses.
