Tedeschi Wines By Asia Euro, at Prego Westin

Wine on a Thursday evening always sounds good.  Thursdays afterall are the precursor to Fridays, so it really is almost as good as the weekend.  At least that's how I replied the invitation by Asia Euro, for the masterclass of Tedeschi Wines, which hail from Verona, Italy.  The event was held at Prego, Westin.

The Tedeschis' name is one of the names rooted in the history of Valpolicella Classica wine. The estate's first documents date back to 1630. The winery is situated in Pedemonte, and is a point of reference for the Valpolicella area and is run by Renzo Tedeschi together with his children Antonietta, Sabrina and Riccardo.

We were honoured by the presence of MARIA SABRINA TEDESCHI,co-owner and Marketing Manager ...boy do they sound sexy when the speak in English with their Italiana accenta....just loved listening to her explanations on the various wines.

"As one of her university teachers declared, she was probably born in a fermenter. She smiled, but immediately afterward reflected on just how much truth there was in his words...
She was so receptive to the examples set by her dad Lorenzo and the stimuli she got from his work as a winegrower. She doesn’t know how her father managed to pass on the genes of enthusiasm, inquisitiveness and strong will which she now finds within us in equal measure. If it could ascertain that her parents really did transmit those genes, then her passion for wine would almost be traceable to a trademark, and the same would be true for the entire Tedeschi family"

Upon arrival, we were given the nicely chilled Soave DOC 2012, from the Garganega grape, which personally reminds me of the sauvignon blanc, but I could be blaspheming here.  Strong fruity aroma, with clean notes of dry of and almonds.  Good body with an almond after taste.  Perfect to go with the cheese platter that was laid out before us.

I have to say the hard cheese selection really complimented the wines, and I particularly like the flatbreads with the lovely jams.

The Valpolicella Superiore DOC 2011, from a combination of Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara, Rossignola, Negrara and Dindarella (gosh, are all these really names of grapes?!!! They sound like characters from a drama).  Ruby red colours, with clear notes of cherry and currants.  An easy to drink red wine, exudes a rather informal party air about it.

The Capitel Monte Olmi Amarone Della Valpolicella DOC Classico 2008 made from Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Rossignola.  This appears to be a more formal wine, with a fuller body, and complex notes of spice, fruit, and notes of Slavonia Oak.
