Allegrini Corvina Blend Veronese IGT la Poja 2009
Allegrinis Palazzo della Torre is often an irresistibly stylish wine, as it is again in 2005. This opulent, generous red is loaded with jammy dark cherries, chocolate, spices and sweet toasted oak. A portion of the fruit for this wine (30%) is left to air-dry on racks (Amarone-style) until December, when it is fermented and subsequently added to the rest of the wine, which is fermented normally. The addition of the wine from the dried fruit gives Palazzo della Torre an uncommon level of richness, density and complexity. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2011.Cheese Pairings: Grana Padano, Robiola, GorgonzolaFood Pairings: Spiced Lamb, Pasta, Steak
Very under rated wine, this was just compared to Zenato Ripassa Baby Amarone and majority of people chose this over the Zenato. Rich nose with a bit of dirt, earth, vanilla, and a touch of smoke on the finish.
30% of the grapes for this wine are heald back to be dried on straw mats. Luscious cherries, chocolate, coffee. This ripasso method gives the wine added depth and complexity and power.
Wow. One of my favorite Italian wines, period. Drank one and put one away for a year or so..can't wait to open it for a great drink then.
Opulent, intense fruit; almost New World in style.
smooth, rich, fruity and absolutely delicious. This wine is reminiscent of a Amarone with port like qualities, minus the hefty price tag. This is my current favorite and go to wine for all occasions.
Fantastic slow weekend evening wine, great full-bodied wine with rich currants and a smokey nose.

The 2005 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a big, fat, super-ripe wine boasting tons of richness in its dark fruit, spices and chocolate. Despite its concentration, this medium-bodied Amarone remains the product of an average harvest and the wine's modest structure can't quite measure up to the 100% new French oak. As always, Allegrini makes one of the more accessible Amarones readers are likely to encounter. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020.
Beautiful aromas of minerals, berries and violets, with just the right amount of toasted oak. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins, but slightly austere on the finish. Give it a year of bottle age. Best after 2002.
