The name Tommasi, within the wine market, is known not only in Italy, but all over the world.

The outstanding product of Tommasi is, without a shadow of a doubt, the Amarone della Valpolicella Classic 2015. Amarone must have specific characteristics, since it is basically a raisin wine, due to the traditional process of drying the bunches. Classico 2015 respects all traditions and the final result is a very fine wine that does not have the distinct sweet note of a raisin wine, but is **a dry, firm and very intense red: an exquisite nectar!
Its color is a ruby red with purple reflections really captivating. The scent of cherry and plum conquers and opens to its full and velvety taste at the same time. A wine that gives its best with robust dishes such as game, meat and roasts. A delicacy that deserves a small economic sacrifice totally rewarded, with interest, from the first sip.
