Tedeschi Amarone Riserva 'La Fabriseria' 2011

2011 Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG Classico Riserva 750ml

Description

Tedeschi specializes in making wines of longevity. Amarone is one of the most labour-intensive fine wines in the world, and winemaker Riccardo Tedeschi and his family set a benchmark example in Valpolicella.
 
This wine is made from a high selection of grapes coming from a single vineyard called 'Fabriseria' located in the high hill of Valpolicella. Nature has not always been generous, that is why, since 1983, this wine has only been produced in certain outstanding vintages, namely 1983, 1988, 1995, 1997, 2003, 2007 and now 2011.
 
The traditional grapes of Valpolicella are dried in special drying rooms for about four months, where the grapes lose about 30% of their weight before they are gently pressed, and the wine ages for three years before bottling.
 
Amarone is a very unique wine made with grapes that are especially suited to the drying and ageing process, making it one of the most long-lived wines in the world.
 
96 POINTS, Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate - Aug 2019
This is a bruiser of a wine—but in a very good way. Loud and expressive and with a roundhouse 17% alcohol kick, the 2011 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva la Fabriseria throws out several different shades of smoke and spice within its thick quality of fruit. Super rich and full-bodied, you'll appreciate its bold character of toasted espresso bean and oak, presented alongside cola and cherry liqueur. The wine is like a gregarious but cuddly friend who is built like a tank and doesn't register his own strength. The blend is 40% Corvina, 40% Corvinone, 15% Rondinella and 5% Oseleta, all coming from the La Fabriseria vineyard located between San Giorgio di Valpolicella and Mazzurega in the Sant'Ambrogio valley, with vines at 500 meters above sea level. The grapes are dried for four months in a ventilated room. Since its birth, this wine has only been produced in the following vintages: 1983, 1988, 1995, 1997, 1998, 2005, 2007 and 2011. Starting with this 2011 vintage, the wine now carries the Riserva designation. You won't find many Amarones quite like this one, especially as only 2,500 bottles of this vintage were made.
