Tommasi Amarone Molinara-Corvina-Rondinella Veneto Premier 5 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 2005 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a pretty, mid-weight Amarone with silky-textured, perfumed fruit. This is a relatively small-scaled Amarone yet the wine possesses lovely inner perfume and terrific overall balance. The 2005 Amarone is already pretty complete and should drink nicely with a minimum of cellaring. Sweet herbs, tobacco and anise ring out on the long, polished finish. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2015. (Oct 2009)

The dense, multidimensional nose here informs the taster immediately that this is serious juice. Blueberry, prune, raisin, dried flavors, herbs, and a touch of bacon sing from the glass. Powerful and luscious, itrsquo;s young, but it is already compelling mdash; even appealing mdash; now, while promising a truly great future. The real thing, with lots of body and depth, impeccable structure, and flavors on top of flavors. Let this lie for five to seven years.

Surprisingly fresh, sweet red cherry fruit is layered over darker, foresty blackberry flavors, keeping this chewy, spicy Amarone youthful. For all its powerful, plush flavors, though, itrsquo;s remarkably restrained, a wine that you could pour this spring with morel risotto.

A superb Amarone, the dark plum/purple-colored 1997 Amarone della Valpolicella reveals notes of cocoa, chocolate, raisins, and ripe plum as well as black cherry fruit. Full-bodied, soft, and luscious, it will drink well for 10ndash;12 years.

The 2005 Amarone is already pretty complete and should drink nicely with a minimum of cellaring. Sweet herbs, tobacco and anise ring out on the long, polished finish. Anticipated maturity: 2009ndash;2015. I was quite taken with the Amarones I tasted from Tommasi this year. The wines spend three years in medium-size barrels and have a classic feel that is very attractive.

Yoursquo;ll feel the heat in this sun-drenched Amarone that offers a chewy consistency and a pleasingly firm but smooth texture. Aroma-wise, therersquo;s a lot going on: First are notes of mature cherry fruit, but there are also green, almost eucalyptus-like renderings. On top of those are coffee, bacon and cocoa.

A balance of the bitter and the sweet, this old-fashioned Amaraone lasts on fresh cherry flavor, firm and juicy over the bite of the tannin. A clean edge of orange zest acidity refreshes it, extending the flavor for a platter of dried fruit and cheese.

A bit understated on the nose, yielding just plum and leather at first, but this really blossoms on the palate, revealing layers of black cherry and plum fruit, framed by hints of vanilla and toast. Ripe and round without being heavy, this excellent Amarone finishes with dusty tannins and another gush of fresh fruit, suggesting 10 years of aging is not out of the question.
