Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico 2015 Magnum 1500ml - Original Wooden Case
Hailing from what was – in the opinion of the experts at Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – one of the best vintages ever in Veneto, Tommasi’s Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico is another beauty. And it now comes in a decadent magnum, beautifully packaged in a wooden case.
The grapes were dried for four months, intensifying and concentrating the juice. The wine has been aged in large oak barrels from Slavonia in Croatia for three years, adding layer upon layer of subtle spice and an unbelievable smoothness for a wine so heavy and rich. It’s densely packed with dark chocolate, earthy mushroom, forest floor, blackberry, prune, damson, dried cherry, freshly ground coffee, burnt orange, wild herb, black pepper, violet and rose flavours. A wonderful wine to carry over from main course to cheese board; we recommend starting with wild boar, venison or hare, and then moving on to the most potent of cheeses.
The glamorous Tommasi estate sits within a sprawling patchwork of vineyards, but the grapes for this wine come from the prestigious hills of La Groletta and Conca d’Oro. For four generations and well over a century, this family has specialised in creating what they call “divine nectar”. Their hard-earned reputation has elevated them to become one of the ambassadors for the entire region and one of the most recognisable Amarone wines in existence.£8 per 100.00ml
