De Buris 2010: wine becomes a concept album

The Tommasi family is celebrating the 2010 vintage of De Buris Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOCG Riserva  with the innovative #TheWineRecord project: the first concept album in which wine becomes music.
The eight tracks of which it is composed combine the sounds of the various phases of wine production with a translation into sounds of the meteorological data of the 2010 vintage, creating unusual and previously unheard sonorities.

De Buris is the luxury of Time. Time is in fact the central concept around which the cultural and enological project of the fourth generation of the Tommasi family revolves: a family which, while respecting tradition, has created an Amarone Riserva that aims to be the most contemporary interpretation of the region it represents, Valpolicella Classica.

The passing of time that accompanies the production cycle of a wine, with its colors, aromas and taste that mingle in artistic equilibrium, has become the score of an original enological and musical work: De Buris Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOCG Riserva 2010, an iconic wine that defines a new interpretation of the Valpolicella zone.

«De Buris represents the maximum potential that a single vineyard and a terroir, unique in its extraordinary qualities, can express in a wine», comments Giancarlo Tommasi, enologist of Tommasi Family Estates. «I like to think, with satisfaction and pride, that the 2010 vintage contains the essence of the Valpolicella area: De Buris represents the contemporary reinterpretation of our traditions, of our ancestors’ techniques of production, and, at the same time, the elegance and harmony of an artefact: in other words, the beauty of art. For this reason, we have decided to present it through a language that is as unusual for a wine as it is appropriate for describing its peculiarities: music. The Wine Record is art. It is the tale of the production cycle of wine as it has never been told before. A wine is color, aroma, taste and emotion, but it is also sound, movement and harmony, which Giacomo Ceschi, a Veronese artist and sound designer, has succeeded in translating into a unique and original musical collection».

The Wine Record – a concept album

  1. THE KEY – The De Buris parcel of the La Groletta vineyard, the terroir where everything begins in the heart of Valpolicella Classica, with its unique characteristics that allows you to produce a great wine.
  2. THE PAUSE – Appassimento (the drying phase) is a rest that lasts 110 days after the harvest: a delicate interval, a real whisper that gives you time to catch your breath.
  3. THE COMPOSITION – Vinification: the drying of the grapes is followed by pressing, a brief phase of cryomaceration and then fermentation, which takes place in oak vats, in an adagio lasting 30 days.
  4. THE ACCENT – Maturation in barrel is a sojourn that lasts for five years, in the silence of the oak casks in the cellar of Villa De Buris, the oldest property in Valpolicella Classica, where the wine is left alone for its essential harmony to evolve.
  5. THE RHYTHM – Bottling is a moment of urgency and excitement, during which the winery becomes a spellbinding choreography and rhythm is the protagonist, with the clinking of the bottles and the cadenced movements of the machinery that beat the time of the wine’s dance.
  6. THE CRESCENDO – Bottle-aging: this period of maturation distributes the wine’s notes, allowing the harmony that has been created over time to settle, and Villa De Buris hosts and protects the bottles of De Buris as they complete their evolution.
  7. THE CHORD – Food pairing: De Buris is now ready; the fine-tuning of the harmonics is essential, whether your pairing is based on contrast or on agreement, and it calls for company that will enjoy the experience to the full.
  8. THE SOLO – Tasting is the abandonment of the senses to the relaxed meditation that a great wine inspires.

The Wine Record is the work of Giacomo Ceschi, artist and sound designer.


Summer in Verona: Wine and Opera

Veneto terra di amici, Verona terra d’amore” (“Veneto land of friendship; Verona land of love”) is the chorus of one of an Italian song dedicated to the city of Romeo and Juliet: a place that boasts Roman and romantic, cultural and oeno-gastronomic traditions, which include wine and the Arena.
From the hot nights of June till the mild ones of September, Summer in the Verona area cannot but be spent on the shores of Lake Garda in the company of a glass of Le Fornaci Lugana D.O.C., or in the shade of an umbrella by the pool with a glass of Valpolicella D.O.C., served cool, if possible.
Because there are only two things that the rising temperatures cannot put a stop to: a good bottle of wine and the annual appointment with opera. The latter is a tradition that boasts years and years of huge success, with productions bearing the names of artists like Riccardo Cocciante or Riccardo Muti, whose latest “Aida” opened the 2021 season in Verona’s famous amphitheater. But, to discover its origins, we have to take a step back in time.

It was in 1913 – around the time that Tommasi, too, was beginning to make its name known around the city – that “Aida” brought the wonders of opera onto the stage of the Arena.

«I think that, of all the operas, it’s the one that’s most suited to this venue: it’s hard for anyone not to associate it – as a great visual and vocal event – with the Arena in Verona».

Alberto Gazale, the baritone born at Sassari in Sardinia, smiles on the stage of the Arena as he prepares to sing the part of Amonasro, Aida’s father in Verdi’s opera, 22 years after his debut here in this role. Verona has been his second home, and it is here that he laid the foundations for the enormous success that has led to him performing in the most prestigious theaters in the world, including La Fenice in Venice, La Scala in Milan, the Wiener Staatsoper in Vienna e the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow.

«Artistically speaking, I was practically born in the Arena, the mother of the art of opera in the Veneto. In 1999 I sang in my first “Aida” here, but in ‘98 I had made my debut in Giuliano Montaldo’s production of Verdi’s “Un ballo in maschera” (“A Masked Ball”), that season’s première. For me, coming back to Verona almost every year is a great source of satisfaction and a great joy».

Meanwhile, the audience are taking their seats for another sold-out performance: Italians, foreigners, couples and single people, adults but also children. For many years now, colored fans have fluttered amid the stalls and glasses of wine have accompanied the show.

«I couldn’t have a home in Valpolicella and not love the great wines of the Veneto and of Verona,» Gazale stresses, «Amarone above all, but also Ripasso, Recioto and all the great historic wines. We might say that wine has a lot in common with art. It is made up of sensations, psychology, connections and emotions, and the liaison of a great wine with a great artistic performance represents a real apotheosis. I have known few well-traveled artists who didn’t also have a passion for wine, which is an extremely deep-rooted part of our culture. It is one of the finest things we know how to do or make».

In the vaults under the Arena, the artists are beginning to prepare for the performance: here you can hear their vocal exercises, while the half- made-up and half-dressed extras run from one end of the corridors to the other. Because, in the Arena, every evening represents a new challenge.

«Choosing a favorite opera is a bit like having to choose between your children. It depends on the director, the conductor; the cast members change, and the same opera can have greater or lesser appeal. But the important thing is especially to love that production, because the strength of an opera is its impromptu nature. Every performance and every evening are different from the rest».

Just as, in the same way, every glass of wine can have a different effect, especially in Valpolicella, where the tasting from Rafaèl Valpolicella Classico Superiore doc, to Ripasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore doc  and Amarone della Valpolicella Classisco docg is an experience of never ending harmony, also evidenced by the excellent reviews of the well-known critic James Suckling.


#thefirstbubble: Tommasi’s Caseo new sparkling wines

Tommasi introduces its new “Metodo Classico” line from Tenuta di Caseo
Three new sparkling wines from the Oltrepò Pavese enrich the range of a family company which, for 120 years, has been one of the most representative producers in the Valpolicella Classica and Lugana areas: #thefirstbubble is Tommasi’s new winemaking challenge.

A gaze into the future, a spirit of initiative, new ideas based on the family’s experience and knowledge; respect for tradition and the savoir faire that has been handed down through four generations: this combination between the modern and the ancient is what lies behind the first release of Metodo Classico wines from the Tommasi family.

After 120 years producing fine red wines like Amarone and the white Lugana from Lake Garda, Tommasi is now presenting #thefirstbubble from Tenuta di Caseo, or rather, the first bubblies: the new sparkling wines, from the Oltrepò Pavese, one of the most prestigious regions for Metodo Classico - Champenoise method, which these wines evoke in their names. Their labels in fact say 530 Pinot Nero Rosé, 470 Pinot Nero and 410 Chardonnay, and they are three expressions of Metodo Classico Brut, which come from the 90 hectares of vineyards with some of the highest altitudes in the Oltrepò Pavese, lying in fact on hills at 410, 470 and 530 meters above sea level at Tenuta di Caseo in the commune of Colli Verdi, in the Alta Versa Valley Lomabrdy, which was purchased by the Tommasi family in 2013.

“Our family loves challenges – comments Pierangelo Tommasi, Executive Director – and our new Metodo Classico – Champenoise method, fully represents the spirit with which Tommasi faces the present in order to create the future. We are known and appreciated all over the world for our red wines such as Amarone, which is the flagship of our company, and for our Lugana from Lake Garda, but we have always wanted to play a proactive role in the world of wine and identify its trends. In the past we have chosen to widen our horizons to other areas like Tuscany, Basilicata, and Puglia, as well as the splendid estate of Tenuta di Caseo, in Lombardy, from which these new sparkling wines come. The Metodo Classico wines from Tenuta di Caseo represent, therefore, a new milestone in the long winemaking experience of our company, and we hope they will be enjoyed by a public that is as wide-ranging and curious as possible, because these wines have a young, versatile spirit and we have produced them to create a whole host of unique drinking experiences, from an aperitif to a refined gourmet meal”.

530 Pinot Nero Rosé Metodo Classico Brut, from the 2017 vintage and matured 36 months on its lees, comes from the highest vineyards of Tenuta di Caseo, and is made exclusively from Pinot Nero grapes. It is a characterful wine, which displays refined and attractive aromas of red fruits and wild roses. It is fresh on the palate with an appealing vein of acidity that makes it perfect for a romantic summer dinner.

470 Pinot Nero Metodo Classico Brut is made from 100% Pinot Nero grapes. It is a dry and intriguing wine from the 2017 vintage, which matured for 36 months on its lees. 470 Pinot Nero displays a dense perlage of tiny, fine and persistent bubbles, as well as a fragrance that is as fresh as a morning breeze in June. Ideal as an aperitif, or with lunch or dinner, it goes exceptionally well with risottos, fried foods, and grilled fish or white meats.

410 Chardonnay Metodo Classico Brut is produced exclusively from Chardonnay grapes; it is a 2017 vintage wine that has spent 36 months on its lees. It is an elegant sparkling wine, with tiny, persistent bubbles. Perfect for an aperitif with friends or with a fish dinner: the ideal wine for accompanying the delightful evenings of summer.

Three sparkling wines that are expressions of one of the finest wine-producing zones in Italy: the Oltrepò Pavese is in fact the third most important region in Europe for the production of Pinot Nero/Noir, and also one of the most significant for Metodo Classico wines. The soils of the vineyards at Tenuta di Caseo are composed primarily of clay, with seams of active limestone that contribute towards guaranteeing a marked minerality in the wines. It is this terroir which, together with meticulous work in both the vineyards and winery, also gives these wines notable potential for aging.

The production of 530 Pinot Nero Rosé, 470 Pinot Nero and 410 Chardonnay is limited: around 6-8,.000 bottles of each type.

 


Opera Wine 2021 - Tommasi Family Estates double up

Saturday 19 June 2021

Italian Wine world restarts from Verona and Opera Wine, the most exclusive event in the world of wine business.

This year there is the celebration of the 10th year since the first edition and Tommasi Family Estates has always been invited to represent the best of Italian wine production, a combination of emotion, culture and craftsmanship.

In this edition of the 10th anniversary, which brings together 186 producers from all over Italy, we are presenting  two of our excellences:

Veneto: De Buris Amarone della Valpolicella Classico doc Riserva 2009

Basilicata: Paternoster Don Anselmo Aglianico del Vulture doc 2015

From the collaboration of Veronafiere and Vinitaly with the prestigious American magazine Wine Spectator, in 2012 was born
OperaWine, Finest Italian Wines: 100 Great Producers selected by Wine Spectator.

OperaWine offers international wine professionals the opportunity to taste and get to know the best Italian wines presented by Italy’s 100 greatest producers according to Wine Spectator.

Each year, the judges taste the selected Italian wines and provide reviews and scores based on different criteria.
After the assessment, the list of the top 100 Italian wines is revealed, promoting Italian wine diversity and high quality.

Opera Wine represents the return in the presence of a market occasion and the face-to-face rite of  wine tastings: We have missed this so much!

Here below the two great scores we received from Wine Spectator

De Buris Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva 2009 - 94 /100
"A beautifully aromatic red, with hints of truffle, loamy earth and dried mint playing on the nose and accenting the baked cherry and raspberry fruit, fig cake and coffee liqueur flavors on the palate. Full-bodied and rich, yet finely knit and elegant overall, with mouthwatering acidity married to the range of flavor. The silky tannins create a pleasing viscosity on the lingering finish."

Paternoster Don Anselmo Aglianico del Vulture Doc 2015 - 92/100
"Creamy tannins firm this suave, medium- to full-bodied red, while lightly juicy acidity and a tang of tarry smoke mesh with flavors of wild cherry, fennel seed and tobacco. Offers a long, fragrant finish."

 


#iosonolarena: Tommasi, one of the 67 columns

#iosonolarena means #iamthearena, suggesting that we share a common heritage and a responsibility towards safeguarding it for future generations. Tommasi will be one of the "67 columns” or rather one of the patrons of this important Fundraising and Corporte Membership project.

The Arena and the Opera are something that the whole world envies, and an Opera in the Arena is a unique and unforgettable experience. It is our duty to support this heritage, to maintain Verona a city that is open and multicultural, welcoming, vibrant and interesting.

 

The dialogue between culture and businesses, art, excellent products and services is a driving force of the economy and ensures that the entire city can prosper. The cooperation is to the advantage of numerous commercial sectors, not only those tied to tourism and restaurants.

We enthusiastically support the Arena Foundation and its festival as patrons, and are extremely proud to represent the most well known and loved symbol of Verona. Our approach to business has always been pragmatic, and given the socio-economic implications for our city over the last year, and for the businesses and artists who animate our piazzas and theatres, we were driven not only by pride, but the determination to make a difference.

Today, Tommasi is an important company with six estates in five different Italian regions. It all began more 120 years ago with a visionary farmer and his dream to bring his wines to every corner of the globe. Today we are one of the leading wine companies in Italy, and our wines are present in more than 70 countries. Our roots remain firmly planted in the Valpolicella Classica, a small corner of paradise in the province of Verona.

Traveling around the world, it has become essential to speak about our cultural heritage: to name the Arena and the Opera, to spread the word about all that Verona has to offer. It is one of the keys to who we are. It is part of our origin, and the passion that drives us.

New ideas and pleasures of the past: the Tommasi family’s magical wine destinations are ready for the upcoming tourist season

New ideas and pleasures of the past: the Tommasi family’s magical wine destinations are ready for the upcoming tourist season.

For tours and wine tastings visit  www.tommasiwinetours.com

Splendid scenery such as only Italy can offer, historic wine domaines, delightful establishments offering hospitality and accommodation: Italy is heading towards summer and is looking forward with renewed optimism to the restart of the wine tourist season.

The Tommasi family is ready to welcome tourists, wine lovers and visitors in general to their magnificent Estates, from Valpolicella Classica to Vulture, offering a full immersion in the countryside with exciting bicycle rides through the vineyards, or total relaxation at a luxurious wellness center.  There will also be opportunities to discover delicious regional dishes and outstanding wines, and for romantic escapes and cultural visits that wine enthusiasts and the simply curious will be able to enjoy thanks to our unique wine destinations: from Tommasi Viticoltori in Valpolicella to Casisano at Montalcino and Poggio al Tufo in the Maremma area of Tuscany – not forgetting Paternoster, an icon of winemaking excellence in Basilicata.

«We are finally ready to reopen the doors of our Estates to tourists and visitors, and we really couldn’t be happier» comments Pierangelo Tommasi, Executive Director of ‎Tommasi Family Estates. « The past months have been complicated, not only for people who work in the tourist or wine industries, but for all of the families in Italy who have had to stay at home because of the pandemic. Fortunately, we can now see the light at the end of the tunnel, and we can’t wait to make our wine tourism packages available to everyone who wants to discover the wonders of our countryside and our unique locations, from Valpolicella to Tuscany, and even Mount Vulture. Wine tourism is a precious resource for the whole country, and I am convinced that it will also represent the driving force for relaunching the whole sector. In the last few months, we have improved and upgraded what we have to offer from the hospitality point of view, and we are well aware that tourism has changed compared to the past: it will be closer to home, slower-paced and less seasonal; there will be greater respect for the environment and people will rediscover the countryside and its artistic, cultural, and gastronomic heritage. These aspects have given us the stimulus to offer wine lovers immersive experiences of even greater quality, in line with the spirit of hospitality that has always guided our family».

In Valpolicella, combining wellbeing with culture

That of Tommasi and Valpolicella Classica is the story of a relationship that has been indissoluble for four generations. The Tommasi family now offers new visits and tastings in the refurbished welcome area at Pedemonte, exploring the world of wine in Valpolicella Classica, one of our country’s outstanding production regions.

This is an experience that you can also enjoy on a bicycle, thanks to the e-bike rental that Tommasi now offers to involve wine lovers in tours through the vineyards of great emotional impact, admiring the grapes and the breathtaking views. Wine lovers can therefore enjoy the unspoiled countryside, before benefitting from a few hours’ well-deserved relaxation in the peace and quiet of the Villa Quaranta Tommasi Wine Hotel & Spa, our magnificent resort strategically positioned between Verona and Lake Garda.

Villa Quaranta offers top-quality wine and food experiences, as well as accommodation that is ideal for a romantic break and the delights of a thermal spa that is a panacea for the mind and body alike: the Terme della Valpolicella, one of the major attractions at Villa Quaranta, and a special place that provides leisure activities for all ages.

Lovers of art will enjoy the extraordinary cultural heritage of Verona, with the possibility of making their time in the city even more enjoyable with a stop at the Caffè Dante Bistrot, in Piazza dei Signori, where they can feast on gourmet dishes accompanied by the Tommasi family’s outstanding wines. In the heart of the historic city center, the Mazzanti Hotel offers its guests a tasting of the Tommasi wines before they retire to their rooms to rest before enjoying a new day in the unforgettable city of Verona.

 

Tommasi’s wine tour of Italy

Leaving the Valpolicella zone, the wine tour of the Tommasi Family Estates carries on amidst the breathtaking scenery of our nation. The first stop is at the magnificent Casisano property at Montalcino, for an experience that will gratify all your senses: from the vineyards to the aging cellar and then the tasting room, wine lovers become the protagonists of a little journey of vinous discovery that will deepen their knowledge of Montalcino and its wines. Our voyage then shifts from the heart of Tuscany to Poggio al Tufo, in the picturesque little town of Pitigliano in the Maremma, where you can stay in a delightful agriturismo in the midst of the vineyards.

From Tuscany to Basilicata: Tommasi then takes its visitors to another stunning wine destination, Paternoster, the flagship winery of Basilicata. On the volcanic soils of Monte Vulture, it grows Aglianico, one of the hardest varieties to cultivate, and in this unique area all you have to do is let yourself be guided by history, discovering the wines and their production methods in the historic cellar of Barone Paternoster.
