Amarone has a distinctive flavor
because of its unique production method. An extremely important wine in Italian viticulture, Amarone is an exclusive and unique symbol of the Valpolicella region. Over the course of time, Allegrini has improved its production method with the goal being to best preserve the characteristics of the fruit whilst drying.
Color: Intense ruby red.
Bouquet: Warm and spicy bouquet, with aromas of raisins. This is due to the fact that the grapes are allowed to partially dry prior to fermenting.
Taste: Well-structured, complex, elegant and velvety.
Food Pairings Traditionally enjoyed with game, roasted and grilled meats, casseroles and well
matured cheeses. Excellent with hearty dishes. Amarone's distinctive flavor
compliments new and exotic sweet and sour dishes. It is therefore also perfect
with Asian and middle-eastern dishes. Serve at 18°C (64°F) and open the bottle
an hour before consuming. This wine has the potential to age for more than 20
"The 2006 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is the finest young vintage I have ever tasted of this wine. The 2006 is a beautifully balanced Amarone with great intensity in its dark fruit and the accompanying structure to support many years of cellaring. Hints of smoke, tar, licorice and incense linger on the tightly wound finish. The freshness, clarity and vibrancy are first-class. This is an exquisite Amarone from Allegrini. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2026."
The Wine Advocate
"Interesting aromas of dark chocolate, coffee bean and very ripe fruit follow through to a full body, with firm tannins and a finish of sweet fruit and treacle tart. A tight style. Needs time to soften and open. Best after 2012."
