Press / Wine Critic's Reviews

About This Wine:
Thanks to a profund understanding gained during years of research and experimentations, Allegrini has perfected a style of Amarone that maintains and even enhances the full potential of the grapes.

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.

Traditionally enjoyed with game, roasted and grilled meats, casseroles and well matured cheeses. Excellent with hearty dishes. Amarone’s distinctive flavour compliments new and exotic sweet and sour dishes. It is therefore also perfect with Asian and middle-eastern dishes.

Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a beautiful, “international” rendition that shows the soft and supple side of Amarone with loads of ripe fruit sweetness. You don’t find the thorny notes of oxidation you sometimes get with Amarone. This expression opens with an inky, impenetrable appearance and shows lingering notes of exotic spice, smoked bacon, grilled herb and blackberry preserves. Drink 2015-2025.

The Allegrini family is one of the strongest pillars supporting the centuries-old winemaking traditions of the Valpolicella and the veritable renaissance those traditions are experiencing today. Until recently, winemaker Franco Allegrini was the driving force at the estate, but today his lovely sister Marilisa has become the face of the brand. Thanks to her tireless, globe-trotting promotional efforts, I’d definitely put Marilisa on a list of the top five ambassadors of Valpolicella." - Monica Larner (Oct 2013)

92 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Harmonious, with depth to the layers of ferrous mineral, pure black cherry, anise, aromatic tea leaf and herb notes, showing a sense of overall finesse to the frame of fine-grained tannins and lightly juicy acidity. Drink now through 2028. 10,400 cases made." –AN (Dec 15, 2013)

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"This classic Amarone has a layered bouquet, with notes of prune, plum, nutmeg and clove, along with bell pepper notes. The palate delivers ripe blackberry and plum flavors, with hints of black pepper and chocolate. While this is very structured, restraint and freshness add elegance. — K.O. (11/1/2013)

96 Points - James Suckling (2008 vintage):
"Amazing in the nose, with hazelnut, walnuts, dark fruits and chocolate. Full body, with a rich and balanced palate and lovely length. Drinkable now but structured for aging. Harmonic." – Dec 9, 2012

92 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine (2008 vintage):
"Ripe, sweet fruit flavors of damson plum and black cherry mix with lively acidity and accents of date, spice box, mineral and fresh earth, while layered tannins add muscle to this elegant red. Drink now through 2025. 10,400 cases made." – AN (Sep 30, 2012)

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine (2008 vintage):
"One of the founding members of the prestigious Amarone Families association who focus on safeguarding the unique winemaking traditions of Valpolicella, Allegrini sets the standard for a new generation of vintners. This opens with sweet tones of Indian spice, ripe fruit and tobacco. The mouthfeel is exceedingly rich, long lasting and intense." - ML (Nov 1, 2012)
