Allegrini Amarone 2009 is made using a blend of the local grape varieties Corvina, Rondinella and Oselet (80/15/5) grown in the family's vineyards in the Valpolicella Classico region. Following harvest the grapes are partially dried at "Terre di Fumane" where conditions are ideal to dry the grapes while avoiding the onset of rot. When the grapes had lost almost half of their original weight they were de-stalked, crushed and the concentrated must was fermented in stainless steel tanks at low temperature, during which time their was daily pumping of the wine over the cap of skins, after which it was matured in new oak barrels for 18 months before blending and a further 7 months in large oak cask prior to bottling. The finished wine is almost black with spice and dried fruit on the nose. The palate is rich and well structured but balanced by excellent acidity.
