Tommasi Amarone Classico 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Ian D'Agata (International Wine Cellar): Deep purple-tinged ruby. Grapey, deep aromas of stewed plum, raisin, date and cocoa explode from the glass. Rich, smooth and very dense, with wonderfully tactile flavors similar to the aromas. This very pure Amarone finishes creamy-sweet but fresh, thanks to sound acidity. An extremely successful entry-level Amarone made from grapes that were air-dried for roughly four months. (Mar/Apr 2012)

The wine is warm, ripe on the nose, with aromas which are intense and of great refinement. On the palate the flavros are complex, smooth, full bodied, with lots of cherry notes and plum.
