As many publications reflect on their most memorable bottles of the year, VinePair has released their top 50 for 2019, including the Tommasi Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico DOCG 2015 at #29. The writer describes the wine beautifully, noting “the nose on this wine is alive with aromas of savory baking spices, caramelized plums, and cracked black pepper. It’s full-bodied and vibrant on the palate, with added notes of dark cherry and espresso. Neither its profile nor its price tag make this an “everyday” wine, but this is Amarone at its harmonious best, and a bottle fit for special occasions.” Read the full write up and learn about the other wines HERE
