Allegrini, Amarone della Valpolicella Classico, 2019
A stone cold classic. This Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is the result of Allegrini’s skill in creating a modern wine with a strong connection to tradition. The wine is made primarily from Corvina sourced from hillside vineyards in the Classico area of Valpolicella. The grapes are dried at 'Terre di Fumane', a state of the art drying centre with controlled temperature and humidity. Under these conditions, the development of botrytis was avoided and the integrity of the fruit preserved allowing for a rich, powerful wine with characteristic dried cherry aromas and a tremendous structure. Allegrini's Amarone is a classic expression of the appellation with both tradition and a sense of place. With intense aromas of ripe, dark fruit and spice, it has an imposing structure and depth, superb balance with refined tannins and a long, spiced finish.
