The first official vintage of Tommasi Amarone Classico is created, from the natural "appassimento" of the Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes. Every vintage since then has been a continuous research to produce better wine, while remaining faithful to the winemaking principles of the founder, Giacomo.

The early 2000s were crucial for Tommasi's growth and diversification. During this period, the family expanded their vineyards and invested in acquiring estates in other prestigious Italian wine regions, such as Tuscany and Puglia. This strategic expansion allowed Tommasi to diversify their wine offerings and gain a broader presence in the global wine market, contributing significantly to their success today.

Tommasi, Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2019 750ML
Tommasi, Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2019 750ML

The quest is for fresher and drier here, as with many contemporary producers. Kirsch, leather, pine and a waft of dried mushroom to tatami straw. This has a mid-weighted feel and is refreshingly savory, yet without, perhaps, the density, sap and prerequisite freshness of top examples. Some oseleta here, serving as a bulwark against the encroaching heat. I'd like to see this in a few more years when my score may come up a notch. Drink or hold.

Tommasi, Il Sestante Amarone della Valpolicella  2019 750ML
Tommasi, Il Sestante Amarone della Valpolicella 2019 750ML

Producer Notes:
A deep ruby red in color, on the nose it offers intense scents of ripe cherries and plums, which give way to lightly floral and ethereal aromas. On the palate it is full-bodied and well-structured. The soft tannins enhance the richness of the fruit, which is nicely balanced by the tangy and persistent finish.

Tommasi, Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva Ca'Florian 2015 750ML
Tommasi, Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva Ca'Florian 2015 750ML

French barriques are used for the single vineyards here, but only for the maximum of one year, 'to fix the colour'. Thereafter, there is a transition to Slavonian oak to complete the mandatory four years. Yet one cannot escape the cinnamon-cedar-nutmeg tannin profile of the barriques. Lovely material behind. Sweet cherry, mint, amaro and sassafras, amidst a swirl of glycerol that coats the mouth. The drive is long, firm and powerful, without extraneous sweetness or obvious excess. A style that defines the philosophy here. A very good wine.
