Founded by Giacomo Tommasi in 1902, Tommasi has grown to be the largest family-owned vineyard estate in the Valpolicella Classica, owning 105 hectares and an additional 15 hectares in the Lugana DOC. Tommasi is located in Pedemonte in the heart of the historic ‘Classico’ region, from which the best quality wines are produced. The estate is owned and managed by the fourth generation of the Tommasi family, with six family members working together in harmony. Pierangelo manages the UK market, while winemaker, Giancarlo prefers to stay close the vineyards and winery.
The grapes for the Romeo come from Tommasi owned vineyards close to Lake Garda and in the Valpolicella region.
The grapes are fermented at cool temperatures to preserve the aromatic compounds of the grapes, in stainless steel tanks for seven days. After fermentation, the wine spends a further four months maturing in stainless steel before bottling.
The 2013 harvest was exceptional following a long ripening season. August was cool and dry, followed by a sunny September with unusually cool nights. The wines from 2013 have notable fruit and rich aromatics.
Ruby red in colour. The perfume is fresh and fruity, with lots of cherry fruit. Flavours of sweet cherry and chocolate with a smooth and supple drinkability, make this wine an easy drinking delight.
Great with salads, pasta, pizza or tomato dishes.
Serve at 17°-18°C. The perfect party wine.
