WineDiva's Review

Supple, plush, generous.
Tommasi is a family wine producer that specializes in wines of the Veneto, which is where they were established in 1902. But they also make wine in Lombardy, Tuscany, Basilicata and Puglia.
This Arele is from partially (parziale) dried Corvina Veronese, Rondinella, Oseleta and Merlot grapes. These grapes have been set out on traditional wooden trays to dry, thereby increasing intensity and resulting in additional weight and concentration.
Expect notes of cedar layered with dried rose petals, pipe tobacco, dried cherries, vanilla and balsamic. The palate is powerful and supple with notable generosity. Cherry, wood shavings, fine spice, chocolate and espresso flavours dominate the palate It has a long, smooth and grapey finish.
Pair with aged Italian cheeses, game or pastas with hearty ragus.

Pairs great with Gone Crackers Olive Oil & Cracked Pepper
