Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 Amarone Classico is made up of 60% Corvina Veronese, 30% Rondinella, and 10% Molinara. All of the fruit was sourced from Tommasi's top two vineyards, La Groletta and La Conca d'Oro. A deep ruby red, it is warm, ripe on the nose, and both intense and refined. Complex, smooth and full-bodied, the fruit profile features notes of cherry and plum.

About Tommasi:

Tommasi Viticoltori (Tommasi Vintners) is a family viticultural company founded in 1902. Tommasi is located in Pedemonte village in the heart of Valpolicella Classico region, on a small piece of land in the northwest part of Verona, between the Lessini mountains and their plains near Lake Garda.

From grandfather Giacomo's tiny vineyard, the Tommasi estate has grown steadily over the course of years and today extends over 135 hectares of vineyards blessed by mother nature not only by a magnificent landscape, but more importantly, by its perfect suitability for grapes. The estate is run by the 4th generation of the Tommasi family, 6 members working together in complete harmony
