Vintage characteristics: 2005 was a vintage characterized by a noticeable climatic change. Spring began with rather low temperatures, which slightly delayed the phenological development of the vines. A heat wave in May and June enabled them to make up for lost time. July, August and September were characterized by little sunshine, substantial rainfall and low temperatures. August, in particular, saw some hail storms, fortunately they did not affect our vineyards. Rainfall in the first half of September and below average temperatures made it necessary to carefully select the grapes that would be kept aside for drying. Production quality was very good thanks to the severe control of quantity.
Tasting notes: 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 Oseleta grapes, by using the thousand-year-old technique of APPASSIMENTO. After being harvested, the grapes are left to dry naturally for three to four months. Amarone is an extremely important wine in Italian viticulture, an exclusive and unique 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 more than 20 years.
Food Pairings: Traditionally enjoyed with game, roasted and grilled meats, casseroles and well matured cheeses. Excellent with hearty dishes. Amarone’s distinctive flavor compliments new and exotic sweet and sour dishes. It is therefore also perfect with Asian and middle-eastern dishes. Serve at 18°C (64°F) and open the bottle an hour before consuming. This wine has the potential to age for more than 20 years.
