Natalie's Score: 95/100

Juicy with racy acidity for tangy meat sauces. Made using the traditional apassimento method of drying the grapes on mats before fermentation to concentrate flavour and body. Classic Amarone with some nuances of wild violets and black cherry liqueur on the finish. Smoky and dark yet elegant in a muscular way. This brooding Italian red wine offers black fruit aromas and smoke on the nose. Underneath and on the palate there's a sensual layer of black fleshy ripe fruit and dark spices. Best consumed with hearty meat dishes and robust conversation.

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico food pairings: osso buco, Tuscan rabbit, meatlover's pizza, roast pork.

Floral, dried berry and leather aromas with blackberry, herb and some red licorice flavors. Tasted Dec 2017 and paired with meaty lasagna.
Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A full-bodied Italian red with aromas of juicy blackberries, cedar, pot-pourrit, sous-bois and hints of black pepper. It has dark berry flavours, a touch of wood, and cocoa at the finish. The flavours linger on the palate. This is a delightful wine!

Tasted November 2017
From the Veneto wine region and well-known and trusted producer, Tommasi, this Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico is crushed violets, cherry liqueur and smoke on the nose. The wine is elegant and sensual on the palate with ripe cherry fruit, savoury spice finishing long and satisfying. - Community Wine Reviews
