Tommasi Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico Veneto 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"For the production of its Amarone, Tommasi selects the best clusters of corvina, corvinone, rondinella and molinara grapes exclusively by hand, and exclusively from hillside vineyards in the Valpolicella Classico area. The grapes some from the family’s choicest plots in the Sant’ Ambrogio and San Pietro in Cariano areas of Valpolicella, where vines are trained using the guyot high-density training method. After harvest, the grapes are placed on small racks in a large grape-drying room known as a fruttaio, where they are dried by cool autumn and winter breezes until the following February. Over these months the grapes lose 45% of their weight, concentrating the level of natural sugar. After fermentation, the wine is aged for about three years in large (35 hectoliter) Slavonian oak casks, and one year in bottle. Rich and ripe on the nose, the wine is complex and full-bodied on the palate, with lots of dried plum and cherry notes that linger on the finish. An excellent choice for red meats, game and mature cheeses." -Importer
