Tommasi Valpolicella Classico Superiore Rafael 2019
|Region||Italy, Veneto, Valpolicella|
A bright ruby red in color, its refined and intense nose reveals both floral and fruity tones, with ripe cherries to the fore. It is graceful and silky on the palate, winning you over with its tasty, supple and persistently fresh fruit and light, elegant style. Very versatile: it is excellent with pasta dishes with rich sauces, roasts and white meats, or moderately aged cheeses. Try it also with spicy Oriental dishes and full-flavored fish soups.
An elegant Valpolicella, balanced and light- to medium-bodied, with light tannins and a delicate, tobacco-laced overtone to flavors of baked black cherry, licorice, olive and loamy earth. Hints of graphite and cedar spice play on the creamy finish. Drink now through 2024. 35,000 cases made, 5,000 cases imported.
