One bottle evaluated only! Have tastedd several less pricy Allegrini earlier with nice experience. This Amarone was unfortunalty a disappointment and not even close to the expected stardard for such price but more like ok for a quarter of the price. I had to leave it back to Systembolaget. /Leif

Allegrini Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOCG 2008 displays ripe and raisiny aromas on the nose, with floral and mineral notes. Allegrini Amarone della Valpolicrella Classico DOCG 2008 is full-bodied, with thick, raisiny fruit, fine fruit-coated tannins and a long mineral finish. Best to allow the wine to breathe/decant an hour before drinking.

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. -AN Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Veneto in Italy. 2008 Allegrini Amarone Classico 750ml

Scoring a higher than the 2007 vintage, the 2008 Allegrini Amarone Classico is sure to be mesmerizing palates for at least the next 10 years but don't let that fool you. This wine won't last long on the shelves.

The name Allegrini is practically synonymous with Amarone. The Allegrini family has been handing down grape growing and wine producing traditions over many generations, playing a major role in the Valpolicella Classico area for many centuries. A "Star" winery in the Gambero Rosso, having won the prestigious "Tre Bicchieri" award at least ten times, Allegrini wines are always premium quality. 92 points from the Wine Spectator who said "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."

This ruby-red wine displays aromas of dried cherries, plums, mocha, fig and sweet spice. On the palate it is well-structured with firm but fine-grained tannins, and a velvety and elegant mouthfeel.


Winemaker's Notes:

Amarone, the exclusive symbol of Valpolicella Classica, is a highly structured, complex, elegant and velvety wine.It has an intense ruby red colour and a warm, spicy bouquet reminiscent of raisined fruit.
