Amarone is the result of all the wisdom of the Allegrini family, a true classic of the denomination, a red that sums up tradition, territory and peasant wisdom. Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Oseleta are left to wither at least until December, checking their health on a daily basis. After a long refinement, the red becomes the emblem of national enology together with Barolo and Brunello di Montalcino. The profile is of great depth and depth, both in the aromas of ripe fruit and spices, as well as on the palate, where alcohol finds the right travel companions in acidity and refined tannins. Traditionally it is paired with game dishes, grilled meats, braised meats and long-aged cheeses. Thanks to the hints of withering of the grapes, Amarone can also be proposed with original and fascinating dishes with sweet and sour flavors, so it goes perfectly with the creations of Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine.

Ripe plum, blue flower and spice aromas lift out of the glass in this full-bodied red. The smooth, concentrated palate boasts a weightless elegance, delivering blackberry compote, ripe Morello cherry, licorice and baking spice framed in enveloping, velvety tannins. Drink 2022-2031.

There's a dark, mineral-driven complexity to the 2016 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico that keeps you coming back to the glass over and over again. Sometimes it's licorice, sometimes blackberry or maraschino cherry, but always backed by a mix of autumnal spice, sour citrus and hints of animal musk that intrigue the senses. Velvety-smooth and almost creamy in weight, as sweet red fruits flesh out, taking on nuances of violet candies and cloves toward the close. This is pure elegance, dense yet balanced, and delivering a layer of fine tannins that linger long, as hints of bitter coffee and dark chocolate slowly fade. All of this, and at an amazingly respectable 15.5% abv. Bravo.

An elegant red, medium- to full-bodied and mouthwatering throughout, this layers supple, lightly chalky tannins with a pleasing range of crushed black currant, fresh thyme and minerally salt and iron notes. Bright and polished, with a lingering, spiced finish. Drink now through 2030. 12,000 cases made, 1,300 cases imported.
