Allegrini Amarone Classico Riserva Fieramonte Single Vineyard
Tasting note: The wine is a beautifully bright, intense and compact ruby colour, with very lively highlights. The nose opens slowly, dominated by red, pulpy fruit that is reminiscent of the cherries that ripen on the highest hills in the Valpolicella in July, flanked by the same aromatic herbs that sprout from the area's dry stone walls to finally reveal a deep note of spices that range from black pepper to cloves. The palate is striking for the fullness of the mouthfeel that emphasizes powerfulness without losing verve and agility. No noticeable sugars, but well-defined non-aggressive tannins that decisively caress the palate, accompanied by a fresh, vivacious acidity that lengthens and slows the mouthfeel. The dry and feisty finish gives rise to a subtle mineral note that promises to fully express itself in the coming years. This is an Amarone that preserves its bond with the past but takes a confident leap towards the future.
The Allegrini family has played a leading role in the history of Fumane and of Valpolicella since the 16th century and has passed on the culture of wine-making from generation to generation. Notarial records reveal that the family played a prominent role in the local community as one of the most important land-owners, involved in agricultural work and local traditions.
