Food Pairings for Tommasi Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico
Listed rating 95
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.
Maintaining the requisite quality from a family that has been in the business since 1902 is no simple endeavor, but the Tommasi family has proven itself up to the task. Their 2001 Amarone - produced from the usual suspects of Corvina Veronese, Rondinella and Molinara - is a rendition of this unequaled wine that inveigles the senses. There is a great refinement of warmth and ripeness on the nose that lingers in the palate. The mouth proffers an array of seamlessly mingled flavors of dried cherry/cranberry with depths of spiced truffle, roasted plum and cocoa/fruitcake nuances. It is a wine that is at once intense, yet, finessed with layers of grip and balanced acidity.
External Reviews for Tommasi Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico
The 2010 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is one of the nicest yet from this historic estate at the heart of Valpolicella. The Tommasi family has crafted a balanced expression with dark fruit, prune and loads of moist chewing tobacco. It is overtly sweet in the mouth and will appeal to those who enjoy the power and opulence of this unique Italian wine. It’s almost ready to drink now but could use a year or two to integrate. Drink 2013–2022.
Open-knit and accessible, with a ripe edge to the flavors of black cherry coulis, fruit cake, licorice and graphite-tinged mineral. Well-balanced, showing fine tannins throughout. Drink now through 2020.
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.
