Wine Advocate-Parker : This wine is part of the Serego Alighieri property, hailing back to 1353, one that prizes a slightly more linear and compact wine in terms of the mouthfeel. The 2012 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Serego Alighieri Vaio Armaron brings out some black olive, but mostly we're talking about super dark fruit here in a seamless delivery. I had the bottle open for a while, and it just got better as it breathed. It's a blend of 70% Corvina, 20% Rondinella and 10% Molinara, with huge intensity and 15.5% alcohol, a nice red for a steak and an acorn squash purée. The aromas recall your classic Amarone, with dried fruit, raisin, prune and exotic spice. Some 42,000 bottles were produced.
