The Tommasi 2019 Valpolicella Classico Superiore Rafaèl flows easily from the glass with cherry, rose and purple fruit aromas. The wine is approachable and mid-weight in texture. It shows enough fresh primary fruit to pair with a classic roast chicken with potatoes, rosemary and garlic. This blend of 60% Corvina, 25% Rondinella and 15% Molinara shows good concentration and fruit texture in this vintage. Production is 35,000 bottles.
