2011 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico TB, Tommaso Bussola, Veneto

Intense, powerful, with wonderful depth and texture. Notes of wild herbs, dried berry fruit, and plenty of minerality. Although this is a powerful wine, it maintains balance and precision, and remains incredibly enjoyable to drink.

TASTING NOTES

Ripe currant and black cherry fruit is set in this medium-bodied red. Fresh and well-spiced, with leather, mocha and dried herb notes lingering on the lightly chewy finish. Very harmonious and expressive.

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.
