From a very hot and dry vintage, the Tommasi 2018 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is supple and round with plenty of soft fruit at its core. The vintage is less complex, with less depth, but it does deliver sweet tones of cherry, ripe plum and crème de cassis. Light shadings of spice and tobacco help to flesh it out. Tommasi's classic Amarone is a blend of 50% Corvina, 30% Corvinone, 15% Rondinella and 5% Oseleta. The grapes are sourced from the Le Groletta and Conca d'Oro vineyards, which have medium-rich limestone soils and lots of fossils.
The Allegrini 2017 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico shows dark fruit and spice that all point to the hot and dry conditions of this vintage. The wine is balanced with a good amount of dark fruit intensity but not overtly jammy or baked fruit. That dense fruit wraps thickly over the palate, supported by backend aromas of charred spice and campfire embers. This is a blend of 45% Corvina Veronese, 45% Corvinone, 5% Rondinella and 5% Oseleta with 120 days of appassimento.
Macerated black cherries bathed in a mixture of cloves, cinnamon, thyme, and pepper waft out of the glass, inviting you to delve deeper. The silky-smooth palate is full of plums and cherries, cocoa powder, and freshly ground coffee. The wine is balanced with fine tannins and enough acidity to keep the palate fresh for the next glass.

Allegrini has crafted a wine of enormous power and opulence. The 2012 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is outsized and decisively overdone. This wine will appeal to a hard-core group of Amarone enthusiasts who appreciate extra darkness, extract, and intensity. You get all of that in this hot-vintage Amarone, and you also get a significant dose of oak spice. In fact, those toasted tones of Christmas spice, clove and dark vanilla are what first emerge from the bouquet. And they emerge with force. The wine is super thick and dense.
The 2010 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico takes a modern spin on a local classic. The blend is 90% Corvina Veronese with smaller parts Oseleta and Rondinella that add colour intensity. The wine's leading aromas revolve around Morello cherry and dark blackberry. But this New World Amarone also undergoes 18 months in new barrique. Its secondary aromas are vibrant and bold with cumin, dark spice, and barbecue smoke. In the mouth, this Amarone offers velvety tannins and thick consistency.

Veneto is a region located in the northeastern part of Italy, known for its rich history and diverse wine production. The region is home to some of the most famous Italian wines, including Prosecco, Amarone, and Valpolicella.

The winemaking tradition in Veneto dates back to the Roman era, and the region has been producing wine for over 2,000 years. The unique climate and soil conditions in Veneto make it an ideal location for growing a variety of grapes, including Glera, Corvina, and Rondinella.

Prosecco is one of the most popular wines produced in Veneto. It is a sparkling wine made from the Glera grape and is known for its light, refreshing taste. Prosecco is typically produced using the Charmat method, which involves fermenting the wine in large tanks before bottling.

Amarone is another famous wine produced in Veneto. It is a full-bodied red wine made from dried grapes, which gives it a rich, complex flavor. Amarone is typically aged for several years before it is ready to drink.

Valpolicella is a red wine produced in the Veneto region. It is made from a blend of Corvina, Rondinella, and Molinara grapes and is known for its fruity, medium-bodied flavor. Valpolicella is typically aged for a short period before it is ready to drink.

Overall, Veneto is a region with a rich winemaking tradition and a diverse range of wines to offer. Whether you are looking for a light and refreshing Prosecco or a full-bodied Amarone, Veneto has something to offer every wine lover.
