Tommasi Rafael Valpolicella Classico Superiore 2021


Region: Valpolicella, Veneto

Tasting note:

“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.” – Winemaker

“Rafaèl is from the Tommasi estate’s oldest vineyards and has been produced in the same style since the beginning. It shows the beauty of the region in its purity of fruit and savoriness. Tart and vibrant cherries mixed with wild raspberries are on equal footing with the floral and savory herbal aromatics that swirl in the glass. The palate is elegant with depth showing sour plum, dried tobacco leaf, turned earth and violet. This complex wine drinks well now and will continue to develop.” – Wine Enthusiast

“This expressive red partners a savory base note of fresh loamy earth and an overtone of balsamico herbs and spices with a sweeter profile of juicy plumped black cherry, red licorice, violet and dark chocolate. Fresh and harmonious, with lightly chewy tannins firming the finish. Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara. Drink now through 2028.” – Wine Spectator
