Allegrini Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2014
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
The result of the Allegrini family’s expertise, a true classic of the appellation, this red wine embraces tradition, territory and the know-how of generations working the land. Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Oseleta are left to air dry at least until December and are checked daily to ensure perfectly healthy grapes. It is this technique of air drying the grapes that produces this unique wine.

Wine EnthusiastExotic spice, mature black-skinned fruit, espresso and French oak are just some of the aromas you'll find on this delicious, full-bodied red. Boasting an enviable combination of concentrated flavors and elegance, it delivers flavors of ripe black cherry, prune steeped in spirits, vanilla bean and licorice framed by enveloping fine-grained tannins. Fresh acidity lifts the rich flavors while a coffee note lingers on the finish. Drink through 2026.
Wine SpectatorA fresh, creamy, medium- to full-bodied red, with fine, supple tannins layered with flavors of crushed black raspberry, fig cake and spiced orange, offering a subtle, savory underpinning of smoky mineral and tobacco that lingers on the finish. Long and elegant. Drink now through 2029.
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico (a blend of 45% Corvina Veronese, 45% Corvinone, 5% Rondinella and 5% Oseleta with 120 days of appassimento) opens to a dark and robust appearance with dried fruit aromas, prune, blackberry preserves, spice, tar and sweet tobacco. The wine is full-bodied for sure, but this vintage is a little less intense in terms of construction and persistence. The mouthfeel is a little more streamlined, just by a hair, compared to a warmer and drier vintage.
