1996 Allegrini Amarone della Valpolicella Classico

SKU #992997 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Very impressive, an unquestionably fine dry red. The outstanding, dark purple-colored 1996 Amarone offers a knock-out nose of wood charcoal intermixed with black truffles, melted asphalt, blackberries, and roast beef. Amazingly rich and full-bodied, but not heavy, this chewy, thick, exceptionally pure, harmonious offering should drink well for 10-15+ years. Its low acidity and gorgeously ripe fruit provide immediate accessibility. (RP) Inner quote mark (8/2000)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Beautifully crafted, with ripe plum, berry and light coffee aromas. Medium- to full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a long finish. (JS, Web Only-2001) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

3 Glasses Gambero Rosso for this spectacular wine. Gambero Rosso is Italy's leading food and wine publication, for which the highest rating--three glasses--is a rare achievement. Aged to perfection, this classic Amarone offers layers of developing fruit and spice aromas in a stunningly dense and luscious body. It is a wine for cold evenings in front of the fireplace when you have ample time to savor its complexity... ideally between bites of aged Parmigiano-Reggiano.
