What a breathtaking wine we have here! I can comfortably say that I haven't experienced much enjoyment with Amarone in the past (with exception to Quintarelli). The Tedeschi wines and in particular the Monte Olmi they produce turns this assumption on it's head. The Monte Olmi is the premium cuvee from Tedeschi that is made up of 30% Corvina, 30% Corvinone, 30% Rondinella and 10% Rossignola, Oseleta, Negrara, Dindarella... and so on. What separates it from the rest is it's ability to maintain the ripe style you expect with Amarone but it is paired with a unique freshness caused by the natural acidity and engulfing tannins. It's a pleasure to drink such a style of wine, but be sure to give this plenty of time in the cellar. I recommend consuming from 2025 onwards. - Chris L
Nicolo Tedeschi founded the Tedeschi estates in 1824 with the operation from grapegrowing to vinification and marketing still in family hands. Since the nineteenth century, Tedeschi have endeavoured to work with nature to create the best wines from indigenous grapes. Today, the company is managed by siblings Riccardo, Sabrina and Antonietta Tedeschi.
The native corvina, corvinone, molinara, dindarella, negrara and rondinella are all grown on the Tedeschi land in the high-trellising systems typical of the Veneto. To make the famously long-lived Amarone, Tedeschi dry their grapes on racks throughout the winter. They have joined with other prominent quality-driven Amarone producers of the Veneto to form the Amarone Families Association, promoting the strict regulation of wines produced within the area under the Amarone umbrella.
