Joe Fattorini's Tasting Note: "A big grand wine for a great occasion. Complexity is the mark of a great wine, and this has it in spades. A concentrated cherry fruit from dried, concentrated grapes that make this wine. And then waves of balsamic, cake, meat, herbs and spice. It's a heady mix in a deftly crafted beast. Big meaty dishes and cheeses are the order of the day here."
Tommasi viticoltori is located in Pedemonte, a small village in the heart of the "Valpolicella Classico" region, in the northwest part of Verona.
The most important and prestigious wine is the stately Amarone, one of the great wines of the world. It is produced from the four Valpolicella grape varieties (Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Oseleta), which are cultivated high on hillside terraces.
Deep ruby red color with garnet shades.
Warm, ripe on the nose, intense and of great refinement.
The taste is complex, smooth, full bodied, lots of cherry notes and plum.

Food Pairing Suggestions: Serve on special occasions, particularly with red meats, beef stew, game and ripe cheeses.
