Allegrini (375ml), 2015, Valpolicella

Red, Old World, Corvina from Valpolicella, Italy



The Allegrini family have been making wine in the Valpolicella region for centuries and they are widely recognised as one of the premier winemakers in Italy. From the 2007 vintage, they sacrificed the Classico status of the Valpolicella and bottled the wine under Stelvin screw-cap in order to eliminate as much as possible the problems of cork taint and random oxidation. Their south-east facing vineyards are located in the hills of the Valpolicella Classico region about 150-250 metres above sea level. Soils are very varied but mostly chalky, of volcanic origin. The vines are 28 years old on average.

Allegrini's tasting notes - Ruby red in colour, with purplish-blue highlights; the nose exhibits fragrant fruit with prominent notes of cherries, echoed by fresher hints of pepper and aromatic herbs, typical of Corvina the historic varietal of this appellation. Whilst young it is impressively lively and playful on the palate whereas some two years on it expresses greater delicacy and finesse.
