Tommasi Amarone Classico 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Lots of licorice, dried fruit, and candied fruit aromas greet the nose along with a touch of VA adding some lift. Rather rich up front, then turning supple and very smooth on the palate with enough RS to lend the dried cherry, dried strawberry and plum flavors a noticeable sweetness. The acidity here is well integrated, some tannins emerge on the backend and through the finish which is black cherry fruited and moderately long, showing a good blend of richness and focus. 89pts

Low acid. Hints of juicy fruit. Long finish on the palate. Full Bodied - did not need any breathing.

Best wine I bought this year. However, overpriced. I love it but will not spend that much money on wine again. (bought 6 bottles) If it ever goes on sale and shipping is free I may reconsider.

From a warmer vintage, the 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is showing beautifully right now. Like all of Tommasi’s top wines, the signature style shows loads of dark fruit intensity and a brooding, textured mouthfeel. It also boasts the overt, chewy sweetness that Amarone is known for. Prune, plum cake and baking spice appear on the finish. Drink 2014–2021.

Lightly juicy overall, with high-toned notes of plum brandy, kirsch, red licorice, tea rose and pekoe tea. Grainy tannins lend texture to the finish. Drink now through 2018.
