Tommasi Il Sestante Amarone della Valpolicella 2018

Product description

Il Sestante Amarone is elegant, smooth and never overpowering - the hallmark traits of Tommasi's flagship wine.  Careful grape selection and the company’s great experience in drying the grapes are the secret of Amarone Il Sestante, a wine that exemplifies the Tommasi family’s passion for the Valpolicella region.

Using their Appassimento technique, Tommasi places selected grapes onto traditional Arele and then left to rest for minimum 110 days in a large dedicated open room, where a ventilation system maintains an elevated and constant airflow. During this period the grapes are constantly checked for mildew with an eye for perfectly healthy grapes.  

This Amarone is deep ruby red in color.  On the nose it offers intense scents of ripe cherries and plums, which give way to lightly floral and ethereal aromas. On the palate, it is full-bodied and well-structured. The soft tannins enhance the richness of the fruit, which is nicely balanced by the tangy and persistent finish.
