(ANSA) – VERONA, SEPTEMBER 14 – There is an Amarone at the top of the latest Decanter ranking: it is the 2015 ‘Fieramonte’ of the Allegrini winery, which received a judgment of 100 points from the historic British magazine, a sort of ‘bible’ of wine. It is so far the first, and only Amarone to have obtained this recognition, equivalent to a gold medal for red wine.
A great result – comments the Allegrini family – which confirms on the one hand the commitment and dedication of the company, on the other hand the value and strength of Valpolicella, which is increasingly appreciated also at an international level. “We can only be happy and honored to see our beloved Fieramonte at the top of the rankings of such an authoritative magazine as Decanter. These 100 points demonstrate the excellence of the Allegrini style but are also a profound Source of pride for the whole of Valpolicella. Results like this confirm that sacrifices and passion always have a raison d’etre “continue the Allegrini.
There are two key dates that have made this Amarone a symbol of Valpolicella: 1960, with the first vintage as a single vineyard, and 2011, when everything starts again after an explant, a replant and a long waiting period during which allowed the vines to reach the level of maturity and then conquer enthusiasts from all over the world.
