Allegrini Valpolicella 2022
Allegrini's Valpolicella is sourced from vineyards located in the hills of the Valpolicella Classico region at 180-280 metres above sea level. However, since the 2007 vintage, Franco Allegrini has sacrificed the Classico status of this wine and bottled it under Stelvin closure to eliminate cork taint and random oxidation problems as much as possible. A blend of Corvina (70%) and Rondinella (30%) this wine is ruby red in colour, with youthful highlights. Fragrant fruit with prominent notes of dark cherries are echoed by fresher hints of pepper and aromatic herbs, typical of Corvina, the historic variety of this appellation. This Valpolicella is impressively lively and playful on the palate, whilst exhibiting delicacy and finesse at the same time.
