Tommasi Amarone Classico 2018, masterfully crafted by winemaker Giancarlo Tommasi, offers a profound tasting experience that epitomizes the essence of Amarone.

This wine pours forth with a very intense ruby-red hue, hinting at the rich and complex journey that awaits. The aroma is an enticing medley of steeped cherry and fig cake, with delicate accents of dried thyme, pomegranate, and a subtle underpinning of espresso.

Upon the first sip, the palate is enveloped in a creamy texture, adorned by lightly firm tannins and precisely balanced acidity that heighten and prolong the flavors. What truly elevates this Amarone is its remarkable tannic texture, which gracefully subsides into a spiced finish of exceptional endurance.

James Suckling’s 94-point acclaim speaks volumes about this wine’s exceptional quality. The nose, a fusion of savory berries, dried blackberries, hints of oranges, dark chocolate, and earthy nuances, sets the stage for a full-bodied and finely-grained palate. The wine’s tight structure, impeccable balance, and aging potential are evident. While it’s indeed drinkable now, the promise of even greater splendor beckons for those who have the patience to allow it to evolve. Consider opening a bottle in 2024 or beyond to fully appreciate this textbook Amarone’s freshness, savoriness, and concentration. Tommasi Amarone Classico 2018 is a wine that captures the heart of Amarone lovers and collectors alike.

Wine Enthusiast
This classic Amarone hits all the bells and whistles for lovers of this wine. Aromas of cooked prunes, savory and sweet spices, roast coffee beans, dark cocoa and dried flowers shine on the nose. The palate shows more savory and earthy notes before dried figs and blackberries perk up the palate. It finishes with elegant and fine tannins.

James Suckling
Savory berries and dried blackberries on the nose, together with oranges, dark chocolate and dry earth. Full-bodied and fine-grained palate, with a tight structure and fantastic balance, which indicates good aging potential. Long and savory, yet reserved. A textbook Amarone with freshness, savoriness and concentration. Drinkable now, but better to give it some time. Try in 2024 or later.
