When Les Brown said, “The harder the battle, the sweeter the victory,” he could have been talking about Amarone…  Amarone is inarguably one of the most difficult (and rewarding) wines to make.  In order to make it, you start with the grapes used in Valpolicella; primarily Corvina, Rondinella, and Molinara, and most wineries will select their most mature vines for their Amarone.  The grapes are harvested late, in order to ensure ripeness, and after they’re picked, the tops of the clusters that get the most sun are dried on straw mats for roughly 120 days.  During that period they’ll lose around 40% of their weight, and what’s left is then pressed and added to partially fermented Valpolicella to increase body, depth, color and make a more serious, deep, rich wine.

The Allegrini family is a classic producer that’s played a major role in Valpolicella since the 16th century, and they not only embrace tradition, but they aren’t afraid to innovate.  Traditionally Amarone grapes are dried on straw mats, which can result in a more musty character.  Allegrini dries their grapes on plastic mats in order to produce a cleaner style of Amarone and preserve the fruit character. They are one of the top producers of Amarone and their wines consistently earn great scores and are always a joy to behold.

Description

2015 ALLEGRINI AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA CLASSICO

From James Suckling, “For a decadent but sleek wine, the ripeness level is spot-on here. It opens with glazed cherries, dried berries, vanilla, eucalyptus, caramel and wet earth, before following through to a dusty palate with tons of dried fruit, supported by fine acidity and a sweet-and-sour character.” 94 Points
