  • The grapes used for Tommasi's Amarone are dried on open racks in an open-sided building from October through February, during which time the shriveling fruit goes through a period wonderfully translated as "active lethargy," losing 50% of their weight and gaining heavy concentration of sugars. After fermentation, it's 4 years in barrel and bottle before release.
