Our online feature this week is the 2018 Tommasi Rafael Valpolicella Classico Superiore (Veneto, Italy) – $23.99 (regularly $28.49).

The Tommasi story is that of a pioneer spirit that started in 1902 that has blazed across four generations. Today, the estate owns 599 hectares of land in some of Italy’s most intriguing and prestigious winemaking regions – including Veneto of course but branches out to Puglia, Montalcino, Maremma, Lombardy and Campania.

Our feature this week is their Rafael Valpolicella, a delicious easy drinking red with aromas recalling dried spices, leather and cherry with the palate flavors being intense, with spicy, sweet cherry notes. Beautifully balanced and very expressive. This wine balances red and black fruit flavors with sage, mint and marjoram. Carried by velvety tannins and mouthwatering acidity, the wine turns savory with exposure to air.

Rafael pairs wonderfully with a platter of cured meats and cheese.

Note this will be our last weekly offer for the year, we’ll return with new offers January 9, 2023.
