Allegrini Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico Superiore 1999
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.
Blackberry, smooth. Didnt take detailed notes. But it was a very nice wine.
Aromas of plum, chocolate, caramel and venison delight the nose. This richly varied wine serves up a smooth mouthfeel decorated by flavors of cherries, berries, raisins, prunes, chocolate and a hint of venison. Flavors combine at intervals to simulate fruitcake and at other times brandy-style liqueur.
