Intense ruby red, clear and transparent
Hints of black currant, sour cherry, cherry, and prune gives freshness to the wine and is combined with hints of minerals and vanilla ethers
Rich structure and balance. The extract concentrate is revealing and well balanced by a significant tannic structure, by a lively acidity and by an alcohol content that insures a good aging potential. The retro-olfaction confirms the nose notes. It is an elegant wine with a long finish.
Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2010 Valpolicella Classico Superiore La Fabriseria shows a level of intensity, tannic structure and overall extraction that is impossible to match. This wine stands far removed from the vast sea of watery Valpolicella red once famously produced in this region. In fact, this wine drinks like the best of them, showing the dark intensity and gravitas of a well-crafted Amarone. The mouthfeel is exceeding soft, plush and succulent. Give it two or three more years. Drink 2014-2020. (Oct 2013)

The Tedeschi family has endeavored to improve the quality of its wines and to accentuate the relationship between the traditional vines and the region. For this reason, Rosso La Fabriseria, a wine created with an international style has been completely re-conceptualized and today is being introduced to the wine drinking audience as a wine that is coherent with the rest of our production and completely rooted in the Valpolicella region. The grape selection consists of Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and a small percentage of Oseleta. The grapes come from vines that are grown exclusively within the Valpolicella Classica Region and are left to over ripen on the vine. The wine yield per hectare is very low and does not exceed that of the Amarone wine. The wine is age exclusively in Slovenian oak barrels. TheValpolicella La Fabriseria is today a great and important Valpolicella wine and represents yet another wine that the Tedeschi family entrusts to tell the world the story of this splendid region.

Over the generations the Tedeschi Family has handed down, and enriched, its winemaking expertise while maintaining the values that are the hallmark of the historic Valpolicella estate.
In 1824 Nicolo Tedeschi, who was known for his integrity and moral fiber, purchased several vineyards, even though earlier documents indicate the family had first purchased vineyards in 1630. Niccolo was followed by Lorenzo Tedeschi, who was nicknamed Damigiana (Demijohn) because his cart was always laden with demijohns of wine, and who in 1908 received the Medaglia d’Oro Arte e Lavoro at the Esposizione Industriale Moderna Citta di Verona .
The passion for winemaking also took hold in Riccardo Tedeschi; the inhabitants of Pedemonte considered him to be a patriarch, and he was so forward-looking that in 1918 he purchased the vineyards of Monte Fontana and Monte Olmi.
His two male children continued his work: Silvino, who meticulously cared for the vines, following the traditional farming techniques developed over the generations, and Lorenzo, Renzo to his friends, who with his wife Bruna promoted the ”Tedeschi Style,” combining tradition and modern technique, and establishing the family-run estate’s name and reputation for quality in Italy and abroad.
Tedeschi is now managed by Lorenzo’s children: Antonietta, who handles Italian sales and the administration, Sabrina, a food scientist who taught and did research at the Istituto di San Michele all’Adige for many years, and Riccardo, an enologist, who, in addition to overseeing all of the estate’s winemaking, handles foreign sales. From the past, constant passion, and from the present, continuous research.
Indeed, the Tedeschi Family has succeeded in maintaining the values that have always distinguished it, but at the same time has kept pace with the present, introducing new technologies. A perfect blend of tradition and innovation that reflects the Tedeschi philosophy: authentic family flavors, and the qualitative standards of a cutting-edge company: Because of this, every Tedeschi wine displays authentic character and personality that remain true over time, thanks to the raw materials: the grapes.
