Allegrini Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2010

Allegrini Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 750ML 2010        
Sku: 9836

Rating
 Wine Advocate 92 points (Dec 2014)
The 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.
 Wine Spectator 93 points (Dec 17 2014)
An 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 minerality. Drink now through 2030.-A.N.
