About this video

We had the pleasure of speaking live with Pierangelo Tommasi, the Executive Director of Tommasi Family Estates. 

VINTUS’ Michael Gitter spoke with Pierangelo over a virtual shared glass of the Tommasi Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2015. A wine that is “practically part of his soul”, Pierangelo details its rich history while showcasing the famous casks in his cellar. The pair also discuss running a family business in modern times: Pierangelo is one of nine members of the current fourth generation of this historic winemaking family, six of whom run the wine business and two of whom run hospitality.
