Tommaso Bussola

After training as a stonemason, Tommaso began working on his uncle’s estate in 1977, and was soon creating his own experimental cuvées, using innovative fermentation and maturation techniques to produce impressive results. To differentiate these wines from his uncle’s, Tommaso’s initials, “TB”, were added to the label, a tradition he continues now. In 1983, only six years after starting at the winery, Tommaso took full control from his uncle decided to retire. Today, Tommaso’s now rightly considered one of the Veneto’s finest winemakers, lauded by legendary producers like Giuseppe Quintarelli.

More About Tommaso Bussola

Tommaso Bussola started at the family estate, owned by his uncle Giuseppe, in 1977, and immediately set out to improve quality on this prime property.

He started selecting the grapes individually for the Amarone, and then built a winery in 1993. At the same time he began using smaller oak barriques, as the French do in Bordeaux and Burgundy, to age the wines. This wood contact gives the wines a smoothness and richness that impressed us with one whiff. He christened this new breed of wines, the pinnacle of his production, ‘TB.’

One of the great fine wines of the world, Amarone is known for its smooth, rich, raisiny flavours. Only the masters are able to integrate the naturally high alcohol levels such that you barely notice them. And Tommaso is one such master, making some of the most balanced wines we know, from the Valpolicella to his benchmark Amarone.
