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 country ways. Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Oseleta are left to air dry at least until December and are checked daily to ensure perfectly healthy grapes. Lengthy refining and ageing finally yields a red wine that has become emblematic of Italian oenology, alongside Barolo and Brunello di Montalcino. It has imposing structure and depth, as much in its aromas of mature fruit and spices, as on the palate, where the alcohol is sustained by the right degree of acidity and refined tannins.
Food pairings: Traditionally enjoyed with game, roasted and grilled meats, casseroles and well matured cheeses. Excellent with hearty dishes. Amarone's distinctive flavour compliments exotic sweet and sour cuisine and is therefore also perfect with Asian and middle-eastern dishes. This wine has the potential to age for more than 20 years.
A 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.-A.N.
