Wine Spectator 90 points - Traditional in style and elegant, this is aromatic, with dried herb and floral notes, accented by graphite and spice. A balanced red, expressive without excessive weight. The fine-grained tannins are layered with flavors of mulberry, dried cherry, pekoe tea leaf and smoke. Drink now through 2021. 1,700 cases made.-AN  (Dec 15 2014)

Wine Advocate 88 points - The 2011 Valpolicella Superiore Maternigo is a darkly concentrated, almost brutish wine that drinks more like an Amarone than a simple Valpolicella Superiore. It opens to a seriously dark appearance and nervous aromas of dark fruit and Indian spice market. The mouthfeel is thickly layered and rich with a definite touch of sharpness to the tannin. Drink 2014-2019. (Oct 2013)

Over the generations the Tedeschi Family has handed down, and enriched, its winemaking expertise while maintaining the values that are the hallmark of the historic Valpolicella estate. In 1824 Nicolo Tedeschi, who was known for his integrity and moral fiber, purchased several vineyards, even though earlier documents indicate the family had first purchased vineyards in 1630. Niccolo was followed by Lorenzo Tedeschi, who was nicknamed Damigiana (Demijohn) because his cart was always laden with demijohns of wine, and who in 1908 received the Medaglia d’Oro Arte e Lavoro at the Esposizione Industriale Moderna Citta di Verona . The passion for winemaking also took hold in Riccardo Tedeschi; the inhabitants of Pedemonte considered him to be a patriarch, and he was so forward-looking that in 1918 he purchased the vineyards of Monte Fontana and Monte Olmi. His two male children continued his work: Silvino, who meticulously cared for the vines, following the traditional farming techniques developed over the generations, and Lorenzo, Renzo to his friends, who with his wife Bruna promoted the ”Tedeschi Style,” combining tradition and modern technique, and establishing the family-run estate’s name and reputation for quality in Italy and abroad. Tedeschi is now managed by Lorenzo’s children: Antonietta, who handles Italian sales and the administration, Sabrina, a food scientist who taught and did research at the Istituto di San Michele all’Adige for many years, and Riccardo, an enologist, who, in addition to overseeing all of the estate’s winemaking, handles foreign sales. From the past, constant passion, and from the present, continuous research. Indeed, the Tedeschi Family has succeeded in maintaining the values that have always distinguished it, but at the same time has kept pace with the present, introducing new technologies. A perfect blend of tradition and innovation that reflects the Tedeschi philosophy: authentic family flavors, and the qualitative standards of a cutting-edge company: Because of this, every Tedeschi wine displays authentic character and personality that remain true over time, thanks to the raw materials: the grapes.
