Tommasi De Buris Amarone Riserva 2008 (94 W&S)
“Introduced this year, De Buris Riserva is the culmination of a project that began in 2000 when Tommasi acquired 4.5 acres in La Groletta, a vineyard at the top of La Grola hill, and purchased Villa De Buris, a 14th-century estate that will become the family’s headquarters. The 2008 De Buris aged in large Slavonian casks for seven years, developing notes of mushroom, dried leaves and savory spices that complement the flavors of dried plum and fig. It’s a lithe, elegant Amarone that would partner well with aged sirloin.”
Amarone della Valpolicella DOC
De Buris is a timeless wine and a new classic. It is the culmination of the talent, passion, patience, and discipline of the Tommasi family in making Amarone, and an homage to the Valpolicella region and its great winemaking potential.
Tommasi has always been a standard bearer of the Amarone appellation. Established in 1902 around the family home in Pedemonte in Valpolicella, the winery has grown and expanded into the choicest areas of the region under the guidance of the many generations of the Tommasi family. The winery is known above all for its classic approach to winemaking in Valpolicella, favoring elegance and balance, and paying homage to the winemaking tradition of their home region.
