Description

Tedeschi ‘Ansari’ Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG is a red wine from the Veneto. It was creatd by the three Tedeschi siblings, ANtonietta, SAbrina and RIccardo, hence the name, AnSaRi. 

The Tedeschi Family wine business can trace their roots back to 1824 when Nicolo Tedeschi purchased several vineyards (although the family have records of owning vineyards back to 1630). A descendant, Riccardo Tedeschi, purchased vineyards in 1918 which included Monte Fontana and their famous Amarone vineyard, Monte Olmi. Today Tedeschi remains a family business and, through a combination of tradition and innovation, is one of the foremost wineries, and one of the top producers of Amarone and Recioto wines, in the Veneto region. The family manages 74 hectares of vineyards, of which 29 are family owned. Amarone della Valpolicella is considered to be the most prestigious wine of the Veneto region.

Tedeschi ‘Ansari’ Amarone della Valpolicella is a relatively new wine for Tedeschi. Ansari is a small batch of wine produced by blending just three barrels of wine, each one the result of a careful selection by ANtonietta, SAbrina and RIccardo, who have collaborated to create an Amarone of great personality, The symbol on the label is connected with the name Ansari and is formed by the combination of the two initial letters of Antonietta, Sabrina and Riccardo Tedeschi. On it there are three grapes and the representation of the concentration process in the drying phase. 

The grapes for Ansari are harvested  from various vineyards located on hills in the Valpolicella area (Mezzane and Tregnago hills). The vineyards are planted on clay and limestone with a strong rock structure with a vine density of 5500 vines per hectare. The grapes, a blend of 35% Corvina, 40% Corvinone, 20% Rondinella and 5% Oseleta, are harvested at the end of September, beginning of October. The grapes then undergo a humidity controlled drying period of 4 months. After a soft proessing, the grapes undergo a period of fermentation and maceration of 40 to 60 days at a temperature 15-18° C. The wine is matured in Slavonian oak barrel for about 30 months and 6 months in bottle prior to release.

Both Amarone and Recioto della Valpolicella (the sweet red wines from the region) were promoted from a Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) to a Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG) in 2009.

This wine is vegetarian and vegan friendly.
