Tommasi Amarone 2009

James Suckling | 92 Points

Very beautiful aromas of dried fruits, with hints of flowers and spices such as closes and dried lavender. Full body, with very fine tannins and a long and beautiful finish. It goes on and on. Similar to 2007. So drinkable now. 7.06.2013

From a warmer vintage, the 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is showing beautifully right now. Like all of Tommasi’s top wines, the signature style shows loads of dark fruit intensity and a brooding, textured mouthfeel. It also boasts the overt, chewy sweetness that Amarone is known for. Prune, plum cake and baking spice appear on the finish.

Wine Spectator | 90 Points

Lightly juicy overall, with high-toned notes of plum brandy, kirsch, red licorice, tea rose and pekoe tea. Grainy tannins lend texture to the finish. Drink now through 201

This classic Amarone has a fragrance of blackberry and spice. The palate delivers succulent but restrained black cherry flavor, with accents of white pepper, nutmeg and almond. It’s structured, but also has just enough freshness. (KO)
