"The result of the Allegrini family's expertise, a true classic of the appellation, this red wine embraces tradition, territory and the know-how of country ways. Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Oseleta are left to air dry at least until December and are checked daily to ensure perfectly healthy grapes. Traditionally enjoyed with game, roasted and grilled meats, casseroles and well matured cheeses. Excellent with hearty dishes. Amarone's distinctive flavour compliments new and exotic sweet and sour dishes. It is therefore also perfect with Asian and middle-eastern dishes." —winemaker

Blend: 80% Corvina Veronese, 15% Rondinella, 5% Oseleta
"Blue flower, baked plum, exotic spice and pipe tobacco are just some of the aromas you'll find on this bold red. The full-bodied enveloping palate doles out layers of juicy black cherry marinated in spirits, fig, cinnamon, mocha and nutmeg framed in velvety tannins. Drink through 2022." —Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast Magazine

"A dense and rich Amarone with soft and velvety tannins, lots of ripe-fruit flavors and tar, coffee and raisin undertones. Flavorful finish. Generous wine. Full-throttle. Drink or hold." —JamesSuckling.com

"The vibrancy and harmony keeps this elegant and well-trimmed throughout, with a concentrated core of tarry mineral and flavors of crushed black cherry, dried thyme, mocha and spice. The fine-grained tannins impart density and a lightly chalky texture. Drink now through 2027. 1,300 cases imported." —Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator
