A well-structured, complex, elegant and velvety wine, with intense ruby red colour. It has a warm and spicy bouquet, with aroma of raisins. In fact, it is made from dried Corvina Veronese, Rondinella and Molinara grapes, by using the thousand-year-old technique of APPASSIMENTO: after being harvested, the grapes are left to dry for three to four months, Amarone is an extremely important wine in Italian viticulture, a unique and unrepeatable symbol of the Valpolicella region. In the course of time Allegrini has improved its production with the aim to best preserve the characteristics of the fruit and has established itself as one of the truest interpreters of its uniqueness. It can age for 20 years.

Wine AdvocateCorte Giara's 2005 Amarone della Valpolicella is a fairly straightforward, easy-going Amarone. It is already rather forward in its expression of leather, spices, tobacco, chocolate and dark fruit, which makes it an excellent choice for drinking over the near-term. This is 70% Corvina Veronses and 30% Rondinella aged in a combination of small and large oak. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2012.
