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. Serving Suggestions: 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.

Wine EnthusiastBoasting an enviable combination of opulence and finesse, this opens with aromas of black plum, vanilla, baking spices and grilled herbs. The rich palate doles out plum cake, black cherry, black pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg alongside smooth, velvety tannins. Gripping intensity holds on through the long finish. Drink through 2025.

Wine SpectatorAn elegant red that seamlessly integrates supple tannins and mouthwatering acidity with a core of plump cherry, fig paste, dried thyme and melted licorice flavors. The long, spiced finish shows a streak of smoky mineral. Drink now through 2030. 1,000 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico takes a modern spin on a local classic. The blend is 90% Corvina Veronese with smaller parts Oseleta and Rondinella that add color intensity. The wine's leading aromas revolve around Morello cherry and dark blackberry. But this New World Amarone also undergoes 18 months in new barrique. Its secondary aromas are vibrant and bold with cumin, dark spice and barbecue smoke. In the mouth, this Amarone offers velvety tannins and thick consistency.
