That is a great price. I bought a magnum of the 1996 Allegrini Amarone at Sams warehouse sale in Feb for $80. WS90. WA95. It was also a Tre Bicchieri winner in 2001. Obviously I haven't opened the mag yet. Amarone's are big thick chewy wines with elevated alcohol levels because of the drying of the grapes. Full bodied with a pleasantly bitter quality to them. Parker indicates that these qualities are present in this bottle and that it will last through 2015. Try this wine with Osso Buco. Buy it.
