2012 Tommasi Soave, “Le Volpare”
This is the wine that GI’s discovered in Italy during WW II and opened American eyes to Italian wine. The best Soaves produced from the Garganega grape are grown on the steep hillsides of the region. This single vineyard wine comes from the heart of the region and exhibits forward bright fruit flavors with a very dry finish. A perfect wine for warm summer nights and cuisine.

All the wines of this region are a blend of indigenous grapes, primarily Corvina and Rondinella. Valpolicella, which takes its name from he region is the lightest bodied wine, harvested, crushed and fermented and aged without oak creating a fresh, vibrant with the intense purity and flavors of the grape.

Tommasi’s estate in Maremma, the coastal hills of Tuscany. This is the region where “Super Tuscan’s” were born. This wine 60% Sangiovese, 40% Cabernet is produced from a single vineyard, creating a wine complexity and concentration. A great grilling wine.
