Tommaso Bussola started his now famous winery in 1977 with the help of his Uncle, all with modest goals of producing a fine Amarone respecting local traditions. While the goals were modest, Tommaso is known as having an inexhaustible energy and passion for winemaking.
After producing wines using the most classic Amarone traditions, Tommaso became curious in the early 90’s about what could be done with French barrique. The result is today’s prized Amarone della Valpolicella, a dense and powerful wine that expresses so much of what the Negrar terroir can do.
While the age of his vines contributes to the quality of the wines, what may actually contribute more is the fact that he uses naturally low-yielding ancient clones: Corvinone, Corvina Grossa and Rondinella.
Corvinone, in particular, is quite rare today because of its low yields and finicky growing habits. Yet, Tommaso claims it is the Corvinone that gives his wines their depth. He calls it the “Super Corvina,” saying that it produces stronger, denser, richer, more perfumed wines.
