Tasting Notes


An interesting melange of currant, prune, flowers and hints of cardamom on the nose follow through to a full body, where the fruit turns to fresh black currant, coating the firm tannins and giving a long, fresh finish of fruit and mineral. Superfresh and well-structured. Delicious now, but best to wait. Best after 2010.


The 2004 Amarone Classico reveals well-articulated aromatics that lead to a poised expression of dark fruit, all supported by silky, refined tannins. This is a medium-bodied style of Amarone with a relatively low level of residual sugar of four grams per liter, which gives the wine its somewhat restrained personality. While I have no doubt this wine can age, I would prefer to enjoy it relatively young. Allegrini uses a combination of small barrels and larger casks for their Amarone, which is made from 80% Corvina Veronese, 15% Rondinella and 5% Oseleta.

The Winery


The Allegrini family upholds a rich historical legacy of excellence while continuing to push quality through innovation. Allegrini has modernized the appassimento winemaking by numerous measures, notably reducing bitterness and emphasizing desirable phenolic flavor compounds by adding dried fruit to previously vinified, fresh wine in lieu of passing fresh wine over grape pomace, which was traditionally done for Amarone. The Allegrinis pair modern techniques such as site selection by soil type, high density planting and guyot trellising to develop wines that tap into the incredible potential of a renewed approach to this historic region.
