Amarone Allegrini combines history, passion and vision. It is a vigorous, intense wine which skilfully balances power and elegance, maintaining and enhancing the integrity of the fruit. Highly acclaimed by wine lovers and the international press, Allegrini’s Amarone is recognised as one of the finest in Valpolicella. 

The best grapes are harvested in upper hillside vineyards and left to dry in the drying loft for about 4 months. After gentle pressing, the wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged in new oak barriques for 18 months. Ageing then proceeds in large barrels for 7 months and in the bottle for 14 months. 

Intense ruby red in colour with garnet hues, it has an extraordinarily complex nose with hints of cherries in brandy and blackberry jam, followed by notes of wilted violets, dark chocolate, coffee and tobacco. The palate is balanced, fresh and soft, enhanced by smooth tannins. 

Amarone pairs with game, barbecued and braised meats and extra-mature cheeses. With its aroma of raisined grapes, it also matches perfectly with sweet-and-sour Asian dishes. Serve at 18°C and open one hour before serving.
