Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOC Price €82.80
Sensorial features: A well-structured, complex, elegant and velvety wine, with intense ruby red colour. Packed with fresh raspberry, blackberry, cassis, and a butterscotch note.. It has a warm and spicy bouquet, with aroma of raisins. Long finish, with ripe tannins. 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 and open the bottle an hour before drinking.
80% Corvina Veronese, 15% Rondinella, 5% Oseleta. Aged for 18 months in French oak and 14 months in the bottle.
