Natalie's Score: 95/100

Made in the apassimento style of drying the grapes on mats before fermentation to concentrate flavour and body, this Amarone is a classic with crushed violets, cherry liqueur and smoky on the nose. Full-bodied with concentrate flavours of juicy blackberries, spiced plum, underbrush, mocha and baking spice flavours on the palate. Finishes long and luxurious. Pair with mature cheeses or dark chocolate.

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico food pairings: osso Bucco, Tuscan rabbit, meat lover's pizza, roast pork.

Reviews and Ratings

Jenny Ratcliffe-Wright CWM rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

An appropriately priced and popular style of Amarone full of sweet dark fruit, freshly baked muffins and a hint of toasted marshmellows. It finishes with dried fig, baking spice and chocolate cherries. Try with a baked brie and blackberry compote. @wrightwineblog
Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A popular Amarone, this vintage has aromas of the typical dried cherry and plum, with spicy notes and fig. Well balanced, it will go well with aged cheeses, pasta and red meat in sauce.
From the Veneto wine region, Tommasi 2015 Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico is lush with great acidity for food. Excellent balance here. Floral on the nose with blackberry, fine herb and anise spice aromas. This is a full-bodied Amarone with dark berry, cherry, cocoa, spiced plum, fine dried fig, herbs and baking spice flavours on the palate. Complex, but easy to enjoy . Try it with dark chocolate studded with dried cherries. - Community Wine Reviews
