Monte Olmi is the name of this vineyard, located at Pedemonte di Valpolicella in the heart of Valpolicella Classica. The vineyard has a south-western exposure and is 2.5 hectares in size. It is laid out on terraces in order to ensure efficient draining in case of abundant rainfall. At the same time, the depth and the clay structure of the terrain serve to retain water during dry period.
Since the early 60s, Renzo Tedeschi had the fortunate idea of vinifying the grapes from the Monte Olmi vineyard separately, thus creating one of the very first single-vineyard wines in Valpolicella. Today Monte Olmi is the symbol of the estate and its territory.
