96 points "This Amarone has a deep pomegranate color with very high clarity, accompanied by herbal and dark fruit scents. The palate is balanced and delicious, with mainly flavors of black cherry, wild cherry, raison, and a slight hint of candied apple. I know this is not a wine that most of us can afford to drink every day - but don't we wish we could - however, it is worth seeking out and holding for those special occasions when good just isn't good enough and you need something "great". Well, here it is, a truly great wine from Italy. Salute!" Best 2006-2016

95 points "Wine Advocate - 12-31-02/Issue 144 - 95 points - Allegrini continues to push the envelope of quality... "a worthy successor to their profound 1997...intense aromas of pepper, black cherries, blackberries, asphalt, and truffles. Extremely full-bodied, with lavish concentration...Bravo!"" Best 2005-2012
