Label for Allegrini Amarone  Classico 2008, Veneto

Product Details

Tasting Notes

Deep ruby red in colour, this Amarone has an impressive structure and depth.

It is intensely perfumed with dried cherries, mature fruit and spice.

Powerful and full-bodied, with a sweet-savoury character with a bitter cherry twist on the long finish.

The alcohol is balanced with good acidity and refined tannins.

Storage Instructions

This wine can be drunk now but will further improve if carefully stored for up to 5 years

Background

History

The Allegrini family estate covers 100 hectares of vineyard in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico area. The family has been growing grapes here for several generations, founded by Giovanni Allegrini. When he died in 1983, it passed to his three children, who ran it together until Walter’s death in July 2003. Franco now looks after the vineyards and is the winemaker and Marilisa is director of marketing.
