Vinous, 90 Points 

"The 2015 Valpolicella Classico Superiore TB is an intense and powerful effort that blends crushed cherry cordials with balsamic and autumnal spices to create a dramatic display that will remind you more of Amazon than Vaolpolicella.  It’s silky-smooth texture and much more savory than you’d expect following its extroverted bouquet.  Within I’m finding tart red berries and salty minerals as well as a bitter twang of pure cocoa.  There’s amazing persistence, too as this finished incredibly long, spicy and with a buildup of chewy concentration.  It’s hard to compare this large-scale wine within its own category, yet there’s plenty of pleasure to be found.  This is made using 50% fresh and 50% dried grapes, all aged in new 700-liter barrels, and it shows." 

Winemakers Notes: 

"The TB selections are Tommaso's finest, made from a ruthless selection only when nature allows. While the Amarone and Recioto enjoy greater renown, this 100% Ripasso wine may be Tommaso's greatest achievement." 

Alcohol: 15%
