Thanks to a profund understanding gained during years of research and experimentations, Allegrini has perfected a style of Amarone that maintains and even enhances the full potential of the grapes.

Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and a small percentage of Oseleta grapes are left to air dry for about 3-4 months and are checked daily to ensure perfectly healthy grapes. After the process of "appassimento" (the natural drying), the grapes lose 40-45% of their original weight and are ready for vinification. They are destimmed and soft-pressed, passgin through fermentation at controlled temperature of 8-22 °C in stainless steel tanks for 25 days, with daily periodic pumping over. Then, the obtained wine 18 months in oak, then blended together for 7 months.
The result of the Allegrini family’s expertise, a true classic of the appellation, this red wine embraces tradition, territory and the know-how of country ways. The lengthy refining and ageing yields a red wine that has become emblematic of Italian oenology, alongside Barolo and Brunello di Montalcino. It has imposing structure and depth, as much in its aromas of mature fruit and spices, as on the palate, where the alcohol is sustained by the right degree of acidity and refined tannins. We suggest to serve this wine at 18 °C and open the bottle an hour before drinking. This Amarone has the potential to age for more than 20 years.
