RM388.80

Size: 750 ml
ABV: 15%

Grape Variety:

Corvina 50%, Corvinone 30%, Rondinella 15%, Oseleta 5%

VINTAGE 2015

2015 was characterized by climatic excesses that subjected the vine to considerable stress. Winter has passed with high temperatures.
The flowering between the end of May and the first week of June involved all the varieties, therefore in advance of the historical average.
The high temperatures of July and August, while blocking the daytime physiological activity, did not slow down the maturation of the grapes, which occurred earlier than the norm. A vintage characterized by extremely high temperatures and low rainfall during the season.
The acidity has been in sharp decline with less fresh but softer and rounder wines. Precisely for this reason it has been an excellent
year for the symbolic wines of the Valpolicella which have their most characteristic aspects in softness, roundness and elegance.

Tasting Notes:

Very intense ruby red color, the nose reveals intense and clean scents of very ripe cherry, black cherry, wild berries followed by fresh and slightly spicy tones. In the mouth it is dry and soft at the same time, enveloping and of great balance thanks to the excellent balance between acidity and tannins. The whole tasting is embellished with a very pleasant tannic texture, which fades towards a finish of excellent persistence, with light hints of red fruit.

Food Pairing:

Its elegance and structure make it perfect with game, red meats or mature cheeses. It is also an ideal accompaniment for lengthy conversations.

Description

Tommasi Amarone is produced from the Valpolicella grape varieties (Corvina, Rondinella, Corvinone, Molinara and Oseleta) which are cultivated on high hillside terraces.

The traditional “pergola veronese” and the modern “guyot” methods of training the vines are used, and only the best and most mature clusters are handly selected for Amarone.

The grapes are placed directly onto small open racks and taken to an open-sided building where they are dried by the cool breezes of autumn and winter until they are crushed the following January.

The Tommasi Amarone ages at least three years in oak barrels and is then bottled. After bottling, the wine ages for at least another year.

To produce Amarone means to embrace a labor of love which is not completed at the time of harvest but continues through the winter months.
During these months the grapes are reduced in a period of “active lethargy”: that is, they seem to be still but changes are taking place that enrich them, giving them new aromas and a deeper flavor, a result of losing about 50% of their weight and concentrating the level of natural sugar.
In managing the drying and vinification process it is essential that the winemaker has clearly in mind the wine which he seeks to create.

Tommasi Amarone is a wine which can be proudly served on special occasions, particularly with roasted meat, game, and ripe cheeses.

It can also be sipped after dinner, before a fireplace, or anywhere as an ideal companion to enjoyable conversation.
