Allegrini Corvina Blend Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico Amarone Classico 2001
Deep purple in color with a bouquet full of dried fruit. Rich and full bodied, intense and elegant. Velvety smooth. Amarone is an extremely important wine in Italian viticulture as it is unique to the Valpolicella region. Recommended with hearty dishes. Excellent with roasted red meats. A superclean, juicy Amarone, with concentrated dried black fruit and a well-concealed, smooth oak note. Full-bodied, with fine tannins that give the palate an elegant poise and prolong the fruity finish. Classy and refined, with a long finish. Drink now through 2012.
Excellent Amarone. This is one of my favorite Amarone. I really enjoy this wine with my main course extending into dessert.
this was an intensely complex wine that i had the fortune of enjoying w/ friends for a 35th anniversary. fat and fleshy, this bold red has tons of dark berries, plum, currant, with notes of pepper and cedar throughout. certainly tannic, but not unbalanced, this will mature very well if you can wait. otherwise, no problem to enjoy now...
Very dark ruby red in the glass quickly giving up rich aromas of chocolate cherries with some dried fruit and plum action. The palate was mouth pucker tannic, full bodied and fat but with plenty of fruity cherries on the mid palate. Lingering finish holding its alcohol well
Great Amarone without going over the top in flavour exposure. Nicely balances. One of my favourites.
it was great, but expensive
This is a great wine. First tasted at the vinyard - if in Northern Italy well worth the trip - about 40 minutes from Verona. Hunt around and you can buy for $60
