Michael (89): The vintage is faced with a tall order to follow the stellar 2011 Amarone that stared structure in the face and embraced it. The 2012 season was not quite so balanced but Tommasi knows a thing or two about making appassimento adjustments. The corvina, corvinone, rondinella and difference maker oseleta have here combined for full market red fruit value and tannic deliverance. There is elegance in the doglie del parto of this Classico and purposed loyalty to traditional values. The wood restraint is admirable, the dried grapes having spent quality time in 35 hL Slavonian oak. The effect is smooth, creamy and benevolent. One year of rest should see this enter its drinking zone. Drink 2017-2022. Tasted October 2016.
