Wine Advocate-Parker :
Allegrini has crafted a wine of enormous power and opulence. The 2012 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is out-sized and decisively overdone. This wine will appeal to a hard-core group of Amarone enthusiasts who appreciate extra darkness, extract and intensity. You get all of that in this hot-vintage Amarone, and you also get a significant dose of oak spice (it ages in barrique for 18 months). In fact, those toasted tones of Christmas spice, clove and dark vanilla are what first emerge from the bouquet. And they emerge with force. The wine is super thick and dense. You could almost drink it with a spoon. I drank from the bottle 24 hours after opening it, and the wine was just as pristine and impactful as the day before. It remained virtually unchanged. The alcohol touches 16%.
