Tommasi Winery is located in the Pedemonte village in the heart of Valpolicella Classico. The first Tommasi Vineyard was planted in the early 1900s by Giacomo Tommasi. Over the last century it has expanded to more than 330 acres of estate vineyards according to our Tommasi wine reviews. In 1997, Tommasi Vineyards made major investments in vineyard locations and dedicated the funds to the acquisition of lands best suited for their Tommasi wines. Today the estate is run by the 4th generation of the Tommasi family with 6 members working together to produce the wine, manage the operations and export the wine throughout the world. Our Tommasi wine ratings illustrate their success in producing powerful red wines of the Valpolicella Classico region, particularly Amarone. Tommasi wines are also produced from the Lago Di Garda, Soave and Maremma Toscana regions as well. To see which wines are best suited for you check out our Tommasi buying guide below.
Tommasi’s Ca’ Florian Amarone delivers loads of ripe, jammy fruit expressed as dried plum, prune and candied berry. The wine feels rich and dense on the palate and imparts a touch of sweetness that makes for a perfect support to the softness of the tannins.
Packaged in a heavy but handsome bottle, this well-extracted Amarone ushers forth massive concentration and power. Redolent of black cherry, cola, steak sauce and teriyaki, this is a natural choice for smoked meat or barbecued prime rib. It shows sweet, chewy tannins on the close.
The Tommasi Amarone lineup in 2007 has shown very impressive results indeed. Il Sestante is a confident, modern expression with clean, dark fruit aromas revved up by chocolate, tobacco and clove. There’s a touch of fruity sweetness on the close.
Charred to the max, as if you were poking your nose into a can of coffee. But we sort of liked that heavily burnt character, which gives way after time and should subside even more if this wine is cellared. In the meantime, be on the lookout for rich, ripe black fruit, a velvety feel and subtle notes of licorice and syrup.
A full-bodied, corpulent Amarone, this doesn't have a great deal of grace just yet. Instead, its bold flavors of cinnamon and clove, cherry and plum plow ahead ruggedly, finshing long and tannic. This has all the right stuff, it just needs time to settle down; try after 2008.
You’ll feel the heat in this sun-drenched Amarone that offers a chewy consistency and a pleasingly firm but smooth texture. Aroma-wise, there’s a lot going on: First are notes of mature cherry fruit, but there are also green, almost eucalyptus-like renderings. On top of those are coffee, bacon and cocoa.
There’s a thick, meaty dimension to this “Super Venetian” blend of Corvina, Oseleta and Cabernet Franc thanks to its dense extraction and compelling notes of ripe cherry, spice, leather and tobacco. It has tart, chewy tannins and a bright, berry-driven finish.
This is a very attractive and well-constructed blend of Corvina, Oseleta and Cabernet Franc with generous aromas of spice, cherry and blackberry. There’s also a hint of forest floor and leather at the back and the wine imparts a bright, polished feel in the mouth.
