Tommasi is historically, and today, a standard bearer of the Amarone appellation, and one of the most important quality producers in the Veneto. The family-run estate was founded in 1902 by Giacomo Tommasi in the village of Pedemonte, which lies in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico region. The family owns 234 acres in Valpolicella Classico, making them the single largest land owners in the area. Over the years, they have expanded their holdings in other areas of the Veneto and now own 370 acres. As has been the case since the winery’s establishment, the family works only with grapes they grow, an important quality decision and reflection of their deep connection to the Valpolicella soil. The Rafaèl Valpolicella is a blend of 60% Corvina Veronese, 25% Rondinella, and 15% Molinara. The aromas recall dried spices, leather, and cherry, and the flavors are intense, with spicy, sweet cherry flavors. Beautifully balanced and very expressive, Rafaèl pairs wonderfully with a platter of cured meats and cheeses!

Tommasi’s Le Rosse Pinot Grigio is grown at the Prunea estate in the Sant’Ambrogio valley of Valpolicella Classico region, acquired by the family in 1997. This Valpolicella Pinot Grigio can be described as sitting between the richer, more concentrated Pinot Grigio from Friuli to the north, and racier styles from the Veneto at large. Light-bodied and juicy with a crowd-pleasing mix of ripe melon, white peach, grated ginger, and honeysuckle notes.
