    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.

    Critical Acclaim:

    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.

    International Wine Cellar

    This expression is beautifully integrated and balanced, with notes of forest fruit and cassis that are set against touches of tar, licorice, brown sugar and cola. The lush and opulent finish delivers an impressive load of dark chocolate and exotic spice.
