2009 Allegrini Amarone della Valpolicella Classico (Elsewhere $75)

SKU #1157709 93 points Antonio Galloni

 The 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico boasts serious power and depth. Mocha, chocolate, blackberry jam and graphite all flesh out in a powerful, full-bodied wine endowed with serious depth. This is an especially opulent, full-bodied vintage for Allegrini's Amarone. I am not sure how the 2009 will age, but it is fabulous right now. The super-ripe, racy style is best enjoyed at the dinner table. There is a lot to like here.  (3/ 2014)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

 This classic Amarone has a layered bouquet, with notes of prune, plum, nutmeg and clove, along with bell pepper notes. The palate delivers ripe blackberry and plum flavors, with hints of black pepper and chocolate. While this is very structured, restraint and freshness add elegance.  (11/ 2013)

92 points Wine Spectator

 Harmonious, with depth to the layers of ferrous mineral, pure black cherry, anise, aromatic tea leaf and herb notes, showing a sense of overall finesse to the frame of fine-grained tannins and lightly juicy acidity. Drink now through 2028.  (12/ 2013)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Red cherries, cinnamon, flowers and dried herbs come together nicely in the 2009 Valpolicella Classico, a mid-weight, varietally expressive offering from Allegrini. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2012. (AG)  (8/ 2010)

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
