VALPOLICELLA SUPERIORE RIPASSO 'CAPITEL SAN ROCCO' TEDESCHI 2019 DESCRIPTION

The 'Capitel San Rocco' Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso is a bottle that stands out for its round and enveloping taste, made by the well-known Veronese Tedeschi estate. The 'Capitel' label was launched by the winery in the early 1970s to identify a cru or a particular selection, echoing the ancient symbol found in the Valpolicella countryside that was used to pay homage to a saint, such as San Rocco, to protect the harvest. The logo on this label, first released with the 1976 vintage, depicts the shell, symbol of San Rocco, recalling the saint's pilgrimage to Santiago.
Tedeschi Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore 'Capitel San Rocco' consists of an equivalent blend of Corvina Veronese, Corvinone and Rondinella, to which is added 10% of the vines Rossignola, Oseleta, Negrara and Dindarella. The vines, with an average age of about 20 years, are trained using the guyot system on red soils of clayey-calcareous matrix and morainic origin. Following the harvest, which takes place between the end of September and the beginning of October, the grapes are destemmed and crushed, followed by alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature with 15 days of contact between the must and the skins. Part of the mass is then macerated for 8-10 days with the Amarone and Recioto marc according to the Ripasso technique, undergoing a slow re-fermentation. After 12-24 months of ageing in Slavonian oak barrels, the wine is finally bottled.
Tedeschi's Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso 'Capitel San Rocco' is ruby red in colour, clear and transparent. The nose reveals notes of cherry, raspberry and redcurrant, followed by hints of sweet spices. Structured, warm and soft on the palate, supported by excellent freshness and smooth tannins.
