The top wines of Allegrini are offered for the first time via the Place de Bordeaux with these vintages, including this 100 points Fieramonte 2015. This Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva DOCG is a blend of Corvina Veronese 45%, Corvinone 45%, Rondinella 5%, Oseleta 5% coming from vineyards from the Valpolicella Classica, Fumane, Verona at an average altitude of 415 meters above sea level. The soil of this vineyard is pebbly, rich in stony substances with a significant amount of magnesium and iron content and a low clay content. The manual harvest is a selection of selected bunches carried out in the middle of September. The Appassimento (drying process) typical of the production of an Amarone with a natural partial drying of the grapes in the drying room with a weight reduction of 40-50%. The soft pressing of the grapes carried out in January with fermentation In stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature for 48 months aging in French oak barrels. Then the blends are merged with another 6 months of blending and approx. 1 year of aging in the bottle. The vintage was characterized by fairly high temperatures and healthy grapes that were perfectly intact during the harvest.

This 2015 Allegrini Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva Fieramonte comes from a perfect year and is very complex. Vintage 2015 is known for its enormous aging potential characterized by a slightly above average alcohol content and a good balance between acidity and extract. The exposure to the southeast guarantees perfect ripening of the bunches and captures a great aromatic expression. The long aging process in the cellar gives depth and layering to the aromas, with the dark fruit initially coming forward and then giving way more and more to spicy notes, coffee and medicinal herbs. The impact on the palate is decisive and powerful, with the mouthfeel gaining grip and finesse thanks to the supple and beautiful acidity that gives this Fieramonte Amarone the feeling of the high alcohol percentage that characterizes an Amarone.

"One of two Allegrini wines making their debut on the Place de Bordeaux this year. From an 8ha vineyard at 415m. Richly scented on the nose with a beautiful nuance to the dark fruits, floral scents and sweet spices, all reported together. The texture is so appealing, rich yet smooth and silky, dominating the palate with the flavors of stewed blackcurrants, coffee beans, orange rind, slightly bitter medicinal herbs, juicy balsamic peppery fruit and a beguiling saltiness.It's enveloping in the best way, but still juicy and lively, really leaves a lingering impression on the palate, an absolute lifeforce.Tannins are on the chewy and grippy side, coating the mouth and tongue but the presentation of the flavors is so precise and detailed.This is amazingly good with excellent freshness throughout . 5% Oseleta completes the blend. Aging 48 months in French oak barriques, 6 months in Slavonian oak. First vintage was 2011 with no 2014 made." - Decanter
