Tommasi Winery prides itself on having a long family history, which alone guarantees the quality and craftsmanship that the company has upheld for over 120 years.

This historic Veronese cellar, from the vineyard to the bottling, is coordinated by a team of expert agronomists and oenologists. Their goal is to create a consistently recognized quality across all products, including “Fornaci,” a Lugana well-presented in its packaging, which we had the pleasure of tasting today.

This product also embodies the energy of the southern shores of Lake Garda and is part of a range where red wines traditionally serve as ambassadors.

In the glass, its brilliant yellow color with greenish nuances speaks of clear aromas of spring flowers and white-pulp fruits. The elegant tropical notes at the end enhance the bouquet.

On the palate, it opens with a harmonious complexity from which the typical mineral note of Lugana emerges. Indeed, the morainic soils lend a distinctive character to the vines grown in this area.

Featuring great intensity and length, the tasting concludes with a hint of fresh almond and a savory, slightly acidic touch that stimulates the palate.

With the Fornaci, Tommasi’s history in the international wine scene closely aligns with the tastes of modern Italian cuisine around the world, characterized by fresh, simply processed ingredients that are always well-balanced. It serves wonderfully as an aperitif with finger food featuring crustaceans and vegetables and pairs well with pasta dishes in white sauces or grilled fish.
