Tommasi Arele 2017, Rosso delle Venezie IGT

RM123.20

Size: 750ml

Alcohol: 13%

All the long experience of the Tommasi family is to be found in this unique and very characterful wine. It skillfully combines both local and international grape varieties with the Appassimento process and takes its name from the wooden and bamboo racks where the grapes are left to dry.

Grapes Variety:

Corvina, Rondinella, Oseleta, Merlot

Tasting Note:

A deep, intense ruby red, it displays a bouquet with marked scents of very ripe red fruits (raspberries, sour cherries and plums), along with ethereal and spicy notes. On the palate it is very harmonious, rich and rounded, with a long finish that is balanced by an attractive tanginess.

Origin:

From grapes selected in the hillside vineyards of Valpolicella.

Description

Tommasi Family Estates

The Tommasi story is that of a pioneer spirit ignited in 1902 that has blazed across four generations.

Since the first small parcel of land in the Valpolicella Classica purchased by Giacomo Tommasi, our hard work and commitment to manage every aspect of the growth of the company directly defines us. This connection to the land, to the people and the markets, has honed our business insight, and strategic innovation, without ever losing touch with the respect and love harbored for the traditions and unique qualities that define this historic wine region.

An attentive ear to change, respect of place, and high-quality production are three driving factors that put Tommasi among Italy’s leading producers. The strength of the family truly forges every Tommasi.

VINIFICATION and MATURATION

Partial drying of the 30% of the grapes for around 45 days. Controlled temperature fermentation at 25°-30°C for 12 days. 12 months’ maturation in 65 hl Slavonian oak casks.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS

A versatile wine that can be drunk throughout a meal. It goes well with dishes that are not too elaborate and is ideal with both white and red meats or moderately aged cheeses.
