Allegrini Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2013
|Region||Italy, Veneto, Amarone della Valpolicella|
A lovely, harmonious red, with plump and juicy dried cherry and strawberry fruit, abundant aromatic spice and herb notes, and accents of graphite, mocha, mineral and licorice. This really sings on the palate and keeps on chiming on the supple finish. Drink now through 2026. 10,000 cases made.

Full-bodied and firmly structured, this offers aromas of dark cherry, mocha, blue flower and a whiff of exotic spice. The concentrated palate doles out black cherry, raspberry jam, raisin, chocolate and baking spice alongside velvety tannins. Drink 2017–2023.

Lots of raisin and sultana aromas with hints of figs. Full body with soft, silky tannins. Lots of new wood too. A modern, intense red. More new wood than in the past but shows lots of fruit as always. Wait and see: Try in 2016.
