Amarone is the result of all the wisdom of the Allegrini family, a true classic of the denomination, a red that sums up tradition, territory and peasant wisdom. Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Oseleta are left to wither at least until December, checking their health on a daily basis. After a long refinement, the red becomes the emblem of national enology together with Barolo and Brunello di Montalcino. The profile is of great thickness and depth, both in the aromas of ripe fruit and spices, as well as on the palate, where alcohol finds the right travel companions in acidity and refined tannins. Gradient ruby ​​on inked shades. Olfactory emanation calibrated on warm notes of dried violets, both ripe and confitured blackberries, sweet spices and confit tomatoes that converge towards darker aromas of wet fur, willow bark, Tuscan cigar, cocoa beans and resin. The taste reveals a broad and robust structure that does not yield an inch in elegance and clarity; the various components appear fused into each other to compose a precious harmony culminating in a mineral, limpid and tenacious finish.
