Tasting Notes

Wine Spectator: 93 Points
An elegant red that seamlessly integrates supple tannins and mouthwatering acidity with a core of plump cherry, fig paste, dried thyme and melted licorice flavors. The long, spiced finish shows a streak of smoky mineral. Drink now through 2030. 1,000 cases imported.


Robert Parker: 92 Points
eRobertParker.com #216 Dec 2014 Monica Larner 92 Drink: 2015 - 2025 $58-$90 (85) The 2010 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico takes a modern spin on a local classic. The blend is 90% Corvina Veronese with smaller parts Oseleta and Rondinella that add color intensity. The wine's leading aromas revolve around Morello cherry and dark blackberry. But this New World Amarone also undergoes 18 months in new barrique. Its secondary aromas are vibrant and bold with cumin, dark spice and barbecue smoke. In the mouth, this Amarone offers velvety tannins and thick consistency. The Allegrini renaissance continues with this strong set of new releases from one of my favorite producers in Valpolicella. I was particularly impressed with the 100% Corvina La Poja and hope more producers will explore mono-varietal expressions of this fascinating indigenous grape.


Wine Enthusiast: 95 Points
Boasting an enviable combination of opulence and finesse, this opens with aromas of black plum, vanilla, baking spices and grilled herbs. The rich palate doles out plum cake, black cherry, black pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg alongside smooth, velvety tannins. Gripping intensity holds on through the long finish. Drink through 2025.
