DSM Magazine, a Des Moines, Iowa luxury magazine, featured the Rafael Valpolicella in “A Red That Tastes Great Chilled.” Wine writer Wini Moranville notes that after years of dissatisfaction with Valpolicella wines in general, it was Tommasi’s Rafael that “immediately got [her] back on the Valpolicella bandwagon.” She quotes NY Times critic Eric Asimov’s observation of “the winemaking renaissance that … has also come to Valpolicella,” and favorably reviews the Rafael, recommending that readers enjoy it well chilled.

Honest Cooking featured the Rafael Valpolicella in “The Perfect Chilled Red Wine with Barbeque.” The article highlights the Rafael as summer red wine choice “while most are pouring white and rosé wines.” Recommended as a summer red because “its chilled temperature and slightly fruity medium-body is perfect even on the warmest nights.” Pairings for the Rafael in the article included “smoky, sauced, spicy ribs or any red or white meats off the grill.”

We are happy to share a lovely review of Tommasi’s Le Rosse Pinot Grigio on the wine blog “Bigger Than Your Head.”

Wine blogger Fredric Koeppel starts off his review of this “Summer-y pinot grigio” as a reminder that the pinot grigio grape “doesn’t have to produce bland, insipid, watery wines intended for mindless consumption.” Writing in high praise of the Le Rosse, he goes on to note that the wine is “quite sprightly on the palate, surprisingly dense and lithe” offering aromas of “heather, sea salt, roasted lemons and almond blossom, white pepper, verbena and quince.” Fredric recommends a few food pairings for the Le Rosse including “grilled shrimp, tuna tartar” and “virtually any roasted or grilled fish.”
