Cocoa, cinnamon and clove come together with crushed plums and balsam herbs as the 2018 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico blossoms in the glass. This is silky and enveloping yet cool-toned in feel, with depths of dark red fruits nicely contrasted by a core of saline minerality. The 2018 finishes structured and long, tugging at the palate with grippy tannins as hints of Baker's chocolate and inner rose slowly fade. This is a vertical and racy edition of Allegrini Amarone, but it will require some time to come fully into focus. (Eric Guido, Vinous, March 2023)

Red fruit focused and reminiscent of a vintage port but spicy, interested in how this would taste aged

Loved this one. Had 2013 for Christmas 2018. Smooth fruits and tannins all the way through. Was a fabulous Christmas gift!
