As football season hits its stride, Vinepair put together a list of writer Keith Beavers’ favorite wine pairings to enjoy with game day grub, including Tommasi Raphael Valpolicella Classico Superiore.
Beavers suggests reaching for a light red with burgers or pizza. Specifically, recommending to go Italian with the Tommasi option and a “hot, gooey pizza with all the toppings.” Adding that while the name of the wine is “a lot to say,” it is “so damn easy to drink.

Tommasi Rafaèl Valpolicella Classico Superiore 2017
Valpolicella Classico Superiore DOC
This Valpolicella comes from the historical Tommasi family vineyard of the same name. Perfectly situated on one of the region’s most famous hills, Monte Masua, it produces what may be the best grapes for the production of Valpolicella Classico Superiore.
Tommasi has always been a standard bearer of the Amarone appellation. Established in 1902 around the family home in Pedemonte in Valpolicella, the winery has grown and expanded into the choicest areas of the region under the guidance of the many generations of the Tommasi family. The winery is known above all for its classic approach to winemaking in Valpolicella, favoring elegance and balance, and paying homage to the winemaking tradition of their home region.
