Amarone, is a great Italian classic. That of Tommasi comes from the vineyards of La Groletta and Conca d'Oro, located in the heart of Valpolicella, on the lush hills of Sant'Ambrogio. The Corvina Veronese, Corvinone, Rondinella and Oseleta grapes are harvested by hand in October and then left to dry in special drying lofts until January. During these months, the fruits lose about 50% of their weight and increase their sugar concentration. After vinification, the wine is aged for 3 years in Slavonian oak barrels and a further year in bottles before release.
Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico of Tommasi is characterised by juicy hints of ripe cherries and plums, it leaves a velvety sensation in the mouth and the taste persists for a long time. It is the ideal wine to accompany rich and savoury dishes, such as mature cheeses, game and red meats.
