Allegrini Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 375ML 2009     
Sku: 17170

Rating
 Wine Spectator 97 points
The 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a beautiful, “international rendition that shows the soft and supple side of Amarone with loads of ripe fruit sweetness. You dont find the thorny notes of oxidation you sometimes get with Amarone. This expression opens with an inky, impenetrable appearance and shows lingering notes of exotic spice, smoked bacon, grilled herb and blackberry preserves. Drink 2015-2025.
