Tasting Notes

The Monte Olmi vineyard is located in the heart of the Valpolicella zone and is a mere 2.5 ha plot in total of both limestone and red, iron-rich soils. After harvest, the grapes were dried for 4 months before pressing, fermenting and then aging for 4 years before bottling. This is a structured, bold wine for aging and is also the pride and joy from the Tedeschi family which has been making wine in the region for over 400 years.
