De Buris is a timeless wine and a new classic. It is the culmination of the talent, passion, patience, and discipline of the Tommasi family in making Amarone, and an homage to the Valpolicella region and its great winemaking potential.

The 2010 Amarone della Valpolicella Riserva De Buris pulls you close with an intense and spicy mix of sour cirrus, tart cherries, dusty rose and dark, dark chocolate. I like the lift here, coming across as intensely floral and with an herbal twang that balances its rich fruits. This is silky yet vertical, as cooling acids add balance, saturating the palate with intense spice while becoming quite floral and mineral toward the close. It's youthfully dense and with amazing potential, leaving the palate coated with fine tannins, nearly silty, along with hints of licorice and bitter spice. The 2010 is simply gorgeous, and with the potential to go two to three decades or more.

Here is the anticipated latest release of Tommasi's special high-end release. The 2010 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva De Buris is the wine they want held to the highest standard. It celebrates the family's long winemaking history. The fruit is selected from a 2.4-hectare parcel in La Groletta with calcareous clay soils, medium texture and lots of rocks. The traditional blend used here is 65% Corvina, 22% Corvinone, 5% Rondinella and 8% Oseleta. The wine ages for five slow years in Slavonian oak, and just 8,392 bottles were made. There is deep intensity here, and the wine reveals its bouquet of dark fruits, spice, leather and earth with slow momentum. It offers an elegant mouthfeel with bright acidity and polished level of tannins that can only be achieved with age. However, the fruit at the core of this wine is well preserved, and the wine tastes much younger than it actually is. Of the three editions made so far (including 2008 and 2009), this 2010 vintage stands tallest.

Rich, dark notes of coffee liqueur, dates, leather and hot stone are integrated with fruit-forward strawberry preserves, baked cherry and red licorice flavors in this expressive, medium- to full-bodied red. It's finely balanced, creamy and lightly mouthwatering on the palate, with refined tannins and hints of spice and dusty sage emerging on the lingering finish. Corvina, Corvinone, Oseleta and Rondinella. Drink now through 2030. 690 cases made, 100 cases imported.
