Allegrini is the Veneto’s most acclaimed winery, and their Amarone is the gold standard. The Allegrini family has been handing down grapegrowing and winemaking traditions over six generations, playing a major role in the Valpolicella Classico area since the 16th century.
The 2016 Allegrini Amarone has received well desered critical acclaim. It is very balanced and easy to drink, medium to full-bodied, featuring light, dusty tannins and subtle acidity. Flavors of dried black plum and black cherry, baked raspberry. tobacco, with layers of dark chocolate, black olive, espresso,dates, grilled thyme and loamy earth are intertwined. Finish is complex and long with a touch of spice. Traditionally enjoyed with game, roasted and grilled meats, casseroles and well matured cheeses.
