Tedeschi Corasco 2016
Rich in flavor
The Tedeschi Corasco is a bold red wine from the delle Venezie in Italy with a deep ruby color, indicative of its rich flavor.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
Made primarily from Corvina Veronese grapes, the Tedeschi Corasco exudes a complex aroma of vanilla and tobacco, which finds its origins in the Slavonian oak barrels this wine had been aged in, for one to one and a half years.
Bottle-aged for six months, this Veneto jewel has depth and character, giving notes of plum, blackberry, and oak on the palate. This wine’s flavor only gets better once it’s opened, getting richer as it’s had time to breathe.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
If you prefer to have it before the main course (and we won’t blame you), enjoy it alongside hard cheeses, like a good gouda, cheddar and/or gruyère. We also suggest this Dehesa de los Llanos Manchego.
And as with most bold, full-flavored reds, the Tedeschi Corasco is magnificent paired with red meats. Have a glass (or two!) with a delicious, juicy steak, or a nicely grilled lamb shank. If you’re leaning more toward some pasta, one with a hearty red sauce would work perfectly.
IN FAIR VERONA
The Tedeschi family has been in the winemaking business for generations. Found in the Valpolicella wine district in Northern Italy, Agricola Tedeschi has been a name long associated with the Amarone della Valpolicella, considered the finest of Veronese wines.
The company has been attributed with the creation of one of Valpolicella’s first ever single vineyard wines. Every wine that comes from Agricola Tedeschi is made with utmost care and quality, resulting in some of the best vinos in Italy.
Store unopened red wines in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from constant vibration. Keep your bottle horizontal in a wine rack or cellar to retain the moistness of the cork. The ideal temperature for storage is between 16 to 18°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 3 to 5 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
