1999 Allegrini, Amarone Classico, Valpolicella, Italy

Very tight wine and even on day three it was not showing much. I must confess that I didn’t like this that much. It’s very heavy on alcohol, raisins, black fruits, pepper and spices. Defiantly we are in the well-made-wine-zone, but I guess I am not that into Amarone anymore. It suited the Christmas food perfectly (90).

Glass: Riedel Sommelier Bordeaux Grand Cru (Christmas Eve 2005)
