Technical Info

Estate

Tommasi is historically and today a standard bearer of the Amarone appellation, and one of the most important quality producers in the Veneto. lhe family-run estate was founded in 1902 by Giacomo Tommasi in the village of Pedemonte, which lies inthe heart of the Val­ policella Classico region that extends north­west of Verona. lhe family owns 234 acres in Valpolicella Classico. making them the single largest land owners in the area. Over the years they have steadily expanded their holdings in other areas of the Veneto. and now own a total of 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 connec­ tion to the Valpolicella soU.

Vineyard

Tommasi selects the best clusters of corvina, corvinone, rondinella and molinara grapes exclusively by hand, and exclusively from hillside vineyards in the Valpolicella Clas­ sico area. 1he grapes some from the family's choicest plots in the Sant' Ambrogio and San Pietro in Cariano areas of Valpolicella, where vines are trained using the guyot high-density training method

Vinification

After harvest, the grapes are placed on small racks in a large grape-drying room known as a fruttaio, where they are dried by cool autumn and winter breezes until the following February. Over these months the grapes lose 45% of their weight, concentrating the level of natural sugar. After fermentation, the wine is aged for about three years in large Slavonian oak casks, and one year in bottle.
