About the Wine
About the Winery
La Pietra di Tommassone is an historical Ischia island winery that ceased to operate when Tommaso Monti aka Tommasone died in the 80's. Antonio, Tommaso's son at the time was in Germany running a small hotel and restaurant. In 2000 he decided that was time to spend his efforts on the land and vines he inherited; La Pietra was back in business as Tommasone. Lucia, Antonio's daughter, took over the operation in the vineyards and in the winery in 2009. Born in Germany, she studied winemaking and practiced working in the Mosel and in Friuli. Passionate about the land of her family she won the respect and admiration of the locals.
Only about 5000 cases are produced. Some older vines are alberello "bush trees". The altitude (over 600ft), the soil - the typical "tufo verde" green tufa - a siliceous calcareous and friable rock rich of phosphorus and potassium, coming from volcanic eruptions, plus clay sediments on the top. The constant presence of some breeze and - of course given the position - of the sun, are all indication of high potential wines.
Tasting Notes: Alluring notes of leather, dark ripe red and black berry notes. The palate offers crisp black cherry and blackberry flavors accented by a touch of graphite and a vibrant acidity. Pair this with pasta dishes topped with hearty sauces.
