Founded in 1902 with a vineyard farmed by Giacomo's grandfather, located in Pedemonte village in northwest part of Verona, today run by the 4th generation of the Tommasi family. A blend of 50% Corvina, 15% Corvinone, 30% Rondinella & 5% Oseleta. Aromas of dried fruits with savory spice notes. On the palate sweet plum and sweet cherry flavors with pepper and cacao. Soft tannins, chewy on lingering finish ending with a fig character.

Dry finish for an Amarone, in that being similar to Bertani '06, but not as 'rocky' and masculine. Soft, semi-ripe dark purple prunes, yet approachable and enjoyable.

2012. Loads of fruit. Even at 15% alcohol no heat.

During Wine Appreciation in my college years this was one of the “aha!” wines I tried during the sensory analysis labs we would take. I just remember tasting this and thinking, “I had no idea a wine could be this rich and dense.” The mouth-drying sensation of the tannins was also a very appealing and intriguing characteristic that I fell in love with.

Perfumed with cocoa, molasses, dried raisins and cherries, and sweet tobacco. What a delicious wine.
