Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOC

80.60 CHF
Format (cl):
Amarone is the result of all the wisdom of the Allegrini family, a true classic of the denomination, a red that summarizes tradition, territory and peasant wisdom. Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Oseleta are left to wither at least until December, checking their health on a daily basis. After a long aging, the red wine becomes an emblem of national enology together with Barolo and Brunello di Montalcino. The profile is very thick and deep, both in the aromas of ripe fruit and spices, as well as on the palate, where alcohol finds the right travel companions in acidity and refined tannins.

Food pairing:
Traditionally it is paired with game dishes, grilled meat, braised meats and long-aged cheeses. Thanks to the withering hints of the grapes, Amarone can also be proposed with original and fascinating dishes with sweet and sour flavors, so it goes perfectly with the creations of Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine.

We recommend serving at a temperature of 18 ° C and uncorking the bottle an hour before consumption.
