Tommasi Rafael Valpolicella Classico Superiore 2016

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Spicy on the nose, and redolent of small wild flowers wrapped around blue and black fruits. Supple and broad on the palate, this really reaches from side to side of the mouth with attractively aromatic blue floral inner mouth perfumes, a hint of something candied and minty and then a core of slightly wild plummy, extract of wild cherry fruit. Theres good focus and nice freshness to the fruit, with a little black spice on the modest finish. This is a crowd pleaser. 87pts

A wonderful mouth feel from a well respected region and producer. A nice fruit flavor with a great balance of earthiness. Excellent value!

This Valpolicella’s dark spice brings to mind a cool cellar. Under those wood tones, it reveals floral notes and green stemminess, dark fruit and soft tannins. A chewy red for braised boar.

A creamy red, with light tannins and juicy acidity framing the mulled cherry and berry notes, balanced by lots of aromatic dried herb and spice accents. Medium-bodied, presenting a hint of espresso crème and smoke on the finish. Drink now through 2018.

Draped with dark cherry and black olive fruit, this wine’s gentle tannins fill a lean and spicy structure with full-on weight. Scents of cedar and peppercorn warm the finish. For braised boar.

A medium-bodied and aromatic red, showing floral and spice accents to the flavors of black cherry, fresh plum, red licorice and pomegranate, followed by a fresh finish. Drink now through 2017.
