Product Details

Tasting Notes

Bright ruby in colour with perfumes characteristic of top quality Corvina - bitter cherries and a twist of raspberry.

On the palate it has bright, lively fruit with good intensity of ripe, summer berries offset by a hint of liquorice from the Syrah.

Long and elegant on the finish.

Storage Instructions

This wine can be enjoyed now or carefully stored for up to 6 years.

Background

History

The Allegrini family estate covers 100 hectares of vineyard in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico area. The family has been growing grapes here for several generations, founded by Giovanni Allegrini. When he died in 1983, it passed to his three children, who ran it together until Walter’s death in July 2003. Franco now looks after the vineyards and is the winemaker and Marilisa is director of marketing.
