Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Tommasi Arele Appassimento.


Inspired by this wine in August, 2015:  Sitting on the porch rocking chair in the cool fall air, wool plaid blanket keeping the the chill away.

Original tasting and review : This is Tommasi Arele Appassimento Veronese, Verona, Piedmonte, Italy, 2009, finished at 13% alcohol and first sampled six years from vintage date, in January, 2015.

In the glass: Dark magenta, opaque from a quarter inch in.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows bright, fruit blackberries and red currants.  From the aroma, seems like this will be fresh, vibrant and young.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact rich with blackberry fruit, light acids and gentle surrounding tannins.  The finish lasts longer than expected, settling slowly and clean.

In summary: Overall, rates an easy three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.
