A story that tells four generations
The story of the company began in the area of Pedemonte, where in 1902 Giacomo Tommasi experimented Amarone, actually one of the most precious DOCG of Italy. It is composed by Rondinella and Corvina, two varieties that meet in the area around Verona their perfect habitat. The familiar vocation of the company got stronger generation after generation. The actual owners have preserved the regional character of their wines even if they bought properties all over Italy. They produce each bottle with the same passion of their grandfather Giacomo, who started the success of the winery. Between the top-products we have to list absolutely Tommasi Valpolicella Ripasso, characterized by spicy hints of raisin. A particular production technique stays behind the creation of this prestigious product: before the aging, Valpolicella wine is poured into those containers where Amarone grapes were pressed. Here, the wine stays in contact with its skins and starts, let’s say, a “second maceration” (“ripasso”). The result is then aged in oak barrels for 18 months and represents the excellence of Valpolicella.
Features and food pairings
The bottles of Amarone produced by Tommasi are quite different from Passito, that exploits the sugar quantity of the over-matured grapes preserved in plastic boxes for different months. Amarone is a dry and structured wine characterized by a ruby red colour and by aromas that recall cherry. This taste is perfect for important dishes like red meat and aged cheese. Otherwise, Valpolicella is excellent with mushrooms, rice, pasta and local cold-cuts. Among Tommasi’s bottles. the white wines have their importance too. They are suitable with white meat, fish starters or vegetables, due to their freshness and balance. Passito is great with sweets.
