The Tezza family winery—run by cousins Flavio, Vanio, and Federico—stands out among Valpolicella producers by sourcing exclusively from their own organically-farmed vineyards. All of the stages in the making of their amarone—from the vineyards to the drying lofts to the winemaking itself—take place onsite. Located in the Valpantena valley, parallel to Valpolicella in the foothills of the alps north of Verona, Tezza benefits from the loam-based soils and sunny climate of their highly-valued corner of the Valpolicella DOCG. This amarone, part of the family’s ‘Corte Majoli’ series, is made from the traditional blend of corvina and rondinella. Harvested in September, destemmed, and crushed, the grapes spend 90 days in the drying loft before maceration in steel vats. The wine then ages for two years in barrel, plus another year in bottle, before being released. Spicy, plummy, and full, this classic amarone brings tobacco and cedar aromatics together with red berry and black cherry flavors, plus well-integrated tannins. Organically grown.
