AMARONE CLASSICO ALLEGRINI 2019 DESCRIPTION

Allegrini's Amarone Classico della Valpolicella is one of the world's best-loved Italian wines. Amarone in general is made from local grapes, vinified after a period of drying. It gives soft, enveloping aromas of great complexity and depth. The origins of wine-growing in Valpolicella date back to Roman times, as is the ancient technique of appassimento, which spread thanks to the natural predisposition of the Corvina, a thick-skinned grape, to undergo this type of practice. In the beginning, only sweet wine was produced from dried grapes, the famous Recioto della Valpolicella, then when a barrel of Recioto was forgotten in the cellar and continued fermenting, consuming all the sugars, Amarone was born. Today it has become the symbolic wine of the territory, appreciated especially on foreign markets. The Allegrini family represents a piece of history in Valpolicella, where they have been cultivating grapes and producing wines for centuries. It is one of the most famous names on the wine scene in Italy and its labels have been a guarantee of excellence for years.

Allegrini's Amarone Classico is the result of a long process of research, aimed at creating a wine that is complex and rich, but which also preserves the fruity aromas of the grapes from which it was made, maintaining the original fragrance of the fruit. During manual harvesting, the healthiest and ripest bunches of Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Oseleta grapes are selected and dried in opposing drying lofts until December. During this period, the grapes dehydrate, losing about 40% of their weight and concentrating sugars and aromas. In the first weeks of January, the grapes are crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 8-22 °C, with maceration on the skins lasting about 25 days, accompanied by frequent pumping over. The wine then matures in new barriques for 18 months, for a further 7 months after blending and completes the ageing period with at least 14 months in the bottle.

Amarone wine is the result of the experience of the Allegrini family, which produces this great excellence of Valpolicella respecting tradition and the time required for its full and complete maturation. It is a red wine of great structure, destined for long ageing, with interesting evolutionary prospects on the aromatic plane. In the glass, it has an intense red colour with garnet reflections. The olfactory picture seduces for the softness and breadth of the aromas, reminiscent of small berries, spices and noble woods. The palate is warm and enveloping, with a rich and complex body, fine tannic texture and balanced freshness. Traditional pairings with the cuisine of the territory want it on the table to accompany stews, braised meats or stewed game.
