Allegrini Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2009
|Region||Italy, Veneto, Amarone della Valpolicella|
Wine EnthusiastThis classic Amarone has a layered bouquet, with notes of prune, plum, nutmeg and clove, along with bell pepper notes. The palate delivers ripe blackberry and plum flavors, with hints of black pepper and chocolate. While this is very structured, restraint and freshness add elegance.
Wine SpectatorHarmonious, with depth to the layers of ferrous mineral, pure black cherry, anise, aromatic tea leaf and herb notes, showing a sense of overall finesse to the frame of fine-grained tannins and lightly juicy acidity. Drink now through 2028.
