2017 Tommasi Amarone della Valpolicella Classico

I have to admit, Amarone’s are not a wine I have a lot of experience, and given the importance of pairing food/wine to me, I struggled with the best place to put this wine, it was a gift from Dale/Lori! … I chose to have it with rabbit stew, as my wine instructor loved to say, if it grows together it goes together. So happy Thursday let’s crack this puppy! Ink dark in color with a mild nose, which btw is about all that is mild about this wine. On the mid palate the wine displays some firm crisp peppery and spicy notes along with some rich deep, dark berry notes. This wine does NOT display the bold dried fruits that often accompany apassimento wines, sometimes so strong you feel like your sucking on a raisin. On the medium length finish the wine displays strong spicy notes, nice dryness, and tannins. This is a lovely wine, I would give it an 88 or so … the kind of wine that could have you embracing Appasimento’s thanks Dale/Lori! from the LCBO web site check stock:
