Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2015
The Allegrini estate covers 100 hectares of vineyard in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico area. The family has been growing grapes here for six generations. Franco Allegrini is vineyard manager and winemaker, while his sister Marilisa is the marketing director.
Amarone is made by drying the fully ripe grapes in temperature and humidity controlled environments so that no Botrytis develops. The dried grapes lose 40% of their weight concentrating the flavours. De-stemmed before crushing and a long warm fermentation followed by 18 months in barriques. After blending it then spends eight months in large oak casks and 14 months in bottle.
Deep in colour with imposing structure, mature fruit and spice with a warming fulsome finish.
