Three wines produced by the Tedeschi Family who span nearly 400 years in wine making. Their association with Valpolicella, it’s terroirs and it’s leading wines is recognised worldwide.
We started with
“Capitel Tenda Soave DOC Classico”
A white wine with a complex bouquet, very clean with expressive notes of peaches and apricots. Notes of dry fruits such as almonds, it is rich and elegant with gorgeous depth. The palate has good body and good acidity and is relatively warm, rounded and well balanced. This pairs well with rich Seafood. Clams, Gnocchi, Squid Ink Linguine, Scallops, Risotto.
£19.50 / bottle
This was followed with a red
“Capitel Nicalo Valpolicella DOC Superiore”
This wine is made in the traditional Veronese manner: Drying of the grapes. The bouquet was intense and elegant, Fruit aromas with the vanilla & tobacco of Slavonian oak. A good body with good structure, lively acidity and alcohol content which is well balanced with tannins. Pair with red meat, game, cheese.
£22 / bottle
We finished with
“Capitel San Rocco Valpolicella Ripasso DOC Superiore”
This wine is made using an ancient winemaking technique called “ripasso”. This consists in introducing a part of Valpolicella produced the preceding autumn, onto Amarone wine marc. The bouquet was ample and complex. Notes of cherry, raspberry and red currant give freshness to the wine. The wine is fruity, well-balanced and well-structured, Alcohol and acidity are in good harmony. The after taste confirms the character of the bouquet. The wine showed a long lasting and persistent flavour. – Delicious.
£26 / bottle
