Winemaker's Notes

A well-structured, complex, elegant, and velvety wine, with intense ruby red color. It has a warm and spicy bouquet, with aromas of raisins. This wine is traditionally consumed with game, roasted and grilled meats, casseroles, and well matured cheeses. Excellent with hearty dishes and perfectly suited for drinking with Asian and Middle-Eastern dishes. This wine can age for 20 years

Critical Acclaim

"An interesting melange of currant, prune, flowers and hints of cardamom on the nose follow through to a full body, where the fruit turns to fresh black currant, coating the firm tannins and giving a long, fresh finish of fruit and mineral. Superfresh and well-structured. Delicious now, but best to wait. Best after 2010."
93 Points

"The 2004 Amarone Classico reveals well-articulated aromatics that lead to a poised expression of dark fruit, all supported by silky, refined tannins. This is a medium-bodied style of Amarone with a relatively low level of residual sugar of four grams per liter, which gives the wine its somewhat restrained personality. While I have no doubt this wine can age, I would prefer to enjoy it relatively young. Allegrini uses a combination of small barrels and larger casks for their Amarone, which is made from 80% Corvina Veronese, 15% Rondinella and 5% Oseleta. "

I dislike giving wines close to $100 a good review, because that's a lot of money. And I don't have a $100 to drop on wine out of the blue. But this is a beautiful amarone; dried cherry and figs, big chewy and delicious. I heard someone describe it as 'hot tube wine', and while I'm not a fan of hot tubs, I know exactly what they meant. And there really is no better description.
