Allegrini Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico Corvina. Rondinella. Molinara Veneto Amarone Della Valpolicella 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

A well-structured, complex, elegant and velvety wine, with intense ruby red colour. It has a warm and spicy bouquet, with aroma of raisins. In fact, it is made from dried Corvina Veronese, Rondinella and Molinara grapes, by using the thousand-year-old technique of APPASSIMENTO: after being harvested, the grapes are left to dry for three to four months, Amarone is an extremely important wine in Italian viticulture, a unique and unrepeatable symbol of the Valpolicella region. In the course of time Allegrini has improved its production with the aim to best preserve the characteristics of the fruit and has established itself as one of the truest interpreters of its uniqueness. It can age for 20 years. This wine is traditionally drunk with game, roasted and grilled meats, casseroles and well matured cheeses. Excellent with hearty dishes. Since the grapes are allowed to dry partially before fermenting, Amarone has a distinctive flavour which can also accompany new or exotic sweet and sour dishes. It is therefore also perfectly suited for drinking with asian and middle-eastern dishes. Serve at 18 C (64 F) and open the bottle an hour before drinking.

The Allegrini Farm is located in Fumane di Valpolicella. For generations, the Allegrini family has lived in this small but important locality of the Valpolicella Classica, handing down the activity of wine growing and the vinification of grapes from generation to generation. Since the XVI century, the components of the family have been among the protagonists of Valpolicella history. The document attesting to the fact that Allegrino Allegrini succeeded in purchasing the right to exploit several "fountains" or "springs" in Mazzurega, a suburb of Fumane, to facilitate irrigation of his property, is dated 1557. Between 1616 and 1630, as testified to by the acts and transcriptions of the time, the Allegrini family was counted among the families in Fumane who owned the most land, which ensured their pre-eminence in local society. Giovanni Allegrini, who was extremely proud, like his predecessors, to belong to the land of Valpolicella and dedicated his many resources and great energy to it, was the head of the new generation. Giovanni was among the first winegrowers to question local practices, revolutionising consolidated habits and speaking clearly about quality; he succeeded in adding oenological know-how to rigorousness in selecting grapes, thus creating a virtuous circle that produced some of the finest wines of the Valpolicella in the Sixties and Seventies of the last century. After his early death in 1983, his three children inherited the company: Walter, responsible for conducting the winegrowing activity, Franco, an oenologist and Marilisa, responsible for marketing. Within a relatively short period of time, they brought the company to a position of leadership in international winegrowing. Read less
