HALF BOTTLES: RED

Red - AMARONE, Allegrini.  Valpolicella. Veneto, Italy (Half Bottle)

2011 AMARONE, Allegrini. Valpolicella. Veneto, Italy (Half Bottle)

Alcohol Percentage: 15.5%
Area: Fumane, 20km north east of Verona in the Valpolicella Classico hills, 180-280m above sea level
Grape Variety: 80% Corvina, 15% Rondinella, 5% Oseleta
Producer: The Allegrini family have 90 hectares of vineyard in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico area. Family-run for many generations, they are the benchmark for quality in the area. The Amarone grapes are dried at ‘Terre di Fumane‘, with controlled temperature and humidity. They lose 40-45% of their original weight, without developing any rot or other problem 'issues'
Cellar Potential: 2016-2026. Delicious young but will mature for many years
Food Match: Cheese, venison, mutton - just make sure there is plenty of flavour on the plate
Old Bridge Rating: Luscious intensity - so much so you hardly notice the high tannin and high acidity, both of which will guarantee a very long future. Amarone is often a big let down (big girl's blouse?) but not here
