Founded by Giacomo Tommasi in 1902, Tommasi has grown to be the largest family-owned vineyard estate in the Valpolicella Classica, owning 105 hectares and an additional 15 hectares in the Lugana DOC. Tommasi is located in Pedemonte in the heart of the historic ‘Classico’ region, from which the best quality wines are produced. The estate is owned and managed by the fourth generation of the Tommasi family, with six family members working together in harmony.
The Fornaci Estate, located near Sirmione, now stretches over 45 hectares in total. The estate is comprised of three main vineyards: the largest plot sits by Lake Garda, and two further inland, all in Sirmione. The area is favoured by the mild climate of nearby Lake Garda.
Pale, bright yellow in colour, this wine has delicious perfumes of tropical fruit and an appetising spicy character. Medium-bodied with attractive minerality, citrus notes and a zingy, crisp finish.
