"Dark bright red. Amarone-like opulence on the nose and in the mouth, with a raisiny nuance to the ripe, soft red cherry, sweet spice and herb aromas and flavors. So velvety and opulent I would have tasted it in Veneto had I tasted it blind, but it’s so well balanced and smooth that it’s pretty irresistible. Finishes long, with lush, smooth tannins and a hint of residual sweetness. I really like this wine because, for all its showy sweetness and opulence, it manages to retain a graceful quality without going over the top. Amarone lovers will score it even higher than I have." (12/14)

Product Description:

Producer:
"Tommasi Viticoltori (Tommasi vintners) is a family viticultural company founded in 1902. It is situated in Pedemonte, in the heart of Valpolicella Classico region, a small piece of land in the North - West part of Verona, between the plains and Lessini mountains and near Garda lake.

"From grandfather Giacomo's tiny vineyard, the Tommasi estate has grown steadily over the course of years and today owns vineyards and estates in three different Italian regions: Tommasi Viticoltori and Filodora Estate in Veneto; Poggio al Tufo in Maremma Tuscany; Masseria Surani in Manduria, Puglia. The estate is run by the 4th generation of the family, nine members working together in complete harmony, each with his well defined area of responsibility." - Winery
