Gambero Rosso, Italy’s most important wine publication, considers Allegrini as a “Star” winery, a winery that has won at least ten "Tre Bicchieri" awards. This rare honor is given to a select few of Italy's top producers and recognizes them for consistently producing outstanding wines across many vintages. The Allegrini Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a very impressive, and unquestionably outstanding, beautifully crafted and fine dry red wine.

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.

A firm, fresh red, with a smoky baseline and balanced flavors of black cherry, damson plum, violet, polished oak and spice. This is structured by bright acidity and chewy tannins that come to the fore on the finish. Best from 2013 through 2023.

Good deep ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of redcurrant and crushed rock, with a red berry liqueur-like nuance. Supple, lush and sweet, but with surprising acidity and a recurring mineral quality energizing the middle palate. Finishes with smooth tannins and very good length. This has the stuffing to age but also offers considerable upfront appeal.

The 2007 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is all elegance and class. It possesses gorgeous depth and roundness in an accessible style best suited for near and mid-term drinking. I donandrsquo;t quite find the structure of the 2006, instead the 2007 impresses for its silky tannins and overall sense of harmony. As always, Allegriniandrsquo;s Amarone is made with an approach that emphasizes approachability rather than power. It will be fascinating to see where the 2007 goes from here. Anticipated maturity: 2014andndash;2022.

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. 91 points from the Wine Spectator ""A firm, fresh red, with a smoky baseline and balanced flavors of black cherry, damson plum, violet, polished oak and spice. This is structured by bright acidity and chewy tannins that come to the fore on the finish. Best from 2013 through 2023."

Winemaker's Notes:

The Allegrini family estate encompasses 70 hectares of vineyard situated in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico area. The Allegrini family have been growing grapes in Valpolicella for several generations, though the estate in its current form was founded by Giovanni Allegrini. When he died in 1983, the estate passed to his three children who ran it together until Walter’s death in July 2003. Franco now looks after the vineyards and is the winemaker, and Marilisa is director of marketing. The Allegrini family’s southeast facing vineyards are located in the Valpolicella Classico hills at 180-280 metres above sea level. The soils are varied, but mostly chalky, stony and well-drained. The older vines are 30 years old on average, pergola trentina trained, with about 3,000 vines per hectare. Newer vines have also been planted which are single Guyot trained with about 5,000 vines per hectares. Grapes for the Amarone are hand harvested during the second half of September and are allowed to dry naturally for about 100 days at ‘Terre di Fumane’, a state of the art drying centre where both temperature and humidity are controlled. By drying the grapes under these conditions, the development of botrytis is avoided, and the integrity of the fruit is preserved. During the drying period the grapes lose 40-45% of their original weight. This delightful Amarone is deep ruby in colour, with a warm and spicy bouquet of characteristic dried cherries and raisins. Well-structured, complex, elegant and velvety on the palate with plenty of fine fruit character and toasty oak. Intense and powerful finish.
