Italy Serego Alighieri Amarone 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep, opaque red, visibly viscous in texture. Extremely rich nose with aromas that go from baked fruit in spirit to the soft spiciness of cinnamon and vanilla. Rich, full-bodied and weighty on the palate with delicious layers of taste. The sweetness of cooked fruit gives way first to almonds and then to coffee with cocoa powder. Rich flavors are prolonged into a soft, dry finish.

Serego Alighieri is a wine produced by descendants of celebrated Medieval Italian poet Dante Alighieri in the Valpolicella region of Italy. The Alighieri family settled in Valpolicella after Dante was exiled from Florence for his political beliefs. The Seregos and Alighieris have been bound by marriage since the 1500s. In 1973, Count Pieralvise Serego and neighbor Sandro Boscaini went into partnership to produce wines from their vineyards, and producer Masi Agricola handled the bottling, marketing and technical aspects. In the 1970s, Valpolicella had been suffering from a reputation for cheap “plonk”, and the idea was to create something of far better quality than these mass-produced wines to once again elevate the perception of the region. The wines have since attracted many fans and continue to be produced adhering to strict quality standards. It is from their example that regional producers have an international market for their value-driven products.  Read less
