Tommasi Amarone Della Valpolicella 2012, Veneto, Italy

Country: Italy

Colour / Style: Red

Featured in: Episode 9

As chosen by: Matthew Rhys

A big grand wine for a great occasion. Complexity is the mark of a great wine, and this has it in spades. A concentrated cherry fruit from dried, concentrated grapes that make this wine. And then waves of balsamic, cake, meat, herbs and spice. It’s a heady mix in a deftly crafted beast. Big meaty dishes and cheeses are the order of the day here.
