Description

Many Veronese locals will tell you that Valpolicella Classico is the wine that tells the history of the region in its most unadorned form. We agree. Valpolicella wines require the skills of the winemaker to find a signature, balanced blend of local grapes. Our fathers decided early on that the Rafaèl vineyard on Monte Masua produced the best grapes for our Valpolicella Superiore. The family blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara has always stayed the same but in varying amounts according to vintage. Fifteen months of wood-aging complete a savory wine with a rich bouquet, that is at once fresh and intense. We won’t add any descriptors that would detract from your moment of discovery. Whether you open Rafeèl tonight or leave it in the cellar for a few years, make sure you take time to enjoy this single vineyard wine that is a source of pride for our family.

Tasting Note

A bright ruby red in color, its refined and intense nose reveals both floral and fruity tones, with ripe cherries to the fore. It is graceful and silky on the palate, winning you over with its tasty, supple and persistently fresh fruit and light, elegant style.

Vinification and Maturation

Maceration for 12 days, with temperature-controlled fermentation at 25°-30°C. Maturation for 15 months in 65 hl Slavonian oak casks.

Vineyard

From the Rafaèl site, the first vineyard to be bought by the Tommasi family; the vines are trained using the Pergola Veronese system and it lies in the Valpolicella Classica zone.

Tommasi Family Estates

The Tommasi story is that of a pioneer spirit ignited in 1902 that has blazed across four generations.
