1995 Allegrini Amarone della Valpolicella Classico

SKU #234072 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 1995 Amarone has developed beautifully. It remains firm and vibrant, with lovely complexity in its perfumed red cherries, licorice, leather, mint and flowers. Still big and full-bodied, the 1995 promises to drink well for a number of years. It is a magnificent effort from Allegrini. Much of the wine’s freshness can be attributed to a cold, rainy spring that resulted in an uneven flowering and naturally lower yields. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2015. (AG, In the Cellar)  (5/2010)

91 points James Suckling

 Dense and rich with dried berries and spices with hints of orange peel and nuts. It is full and goes on for minutes. Wonderful finish.  (4/2015)

Wine Spectator

 Wonderfully clean and vibrant, with crushed berry, cherry, spice and raisin on the nose. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long finish....give it time. Best after 2002. (JS)  (6/2000)

K&L Notes

If you really want the biggest of wines, Amarone fits the bill perfectly. The highlight wine of my April, 1999 Vinitaly trip was the 1995 Allegrini Amarone. I found it then to be a blockbuster wine that would age for 10-15 years, but with some aeration and a chunk of Parmigiano Reggiano could be enjoyed upon release. The Allegrinis felt the 1995 and 1996 are their best Amarone ever. And awarded 3 Bicchieri Gambero Rosso! (Greg St. Clair, K&L Italian wine buyer)

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.
