Located in Fumane di Valpolicella, the Allegrini family have been producing wine in the region since 1557 and today tend around 70 hectares of vines in the communes of Fumane, Sant’ Ambrogio and San Pietro, all situated within the Valpolicella Classico DOC.
Deep black dark red colour with a dark red hue. Aromas of dark to black cherries and liquorice mix with earth, dried herbs and spice. Morello cherry and liquorice fruits cast a fresh mid weighted feel across the palate with dried herb, light earth and spice nuances ensuing on a fleshed out finish. Polished tannins and nicely balanced acidity lead into a savoury aftertaste.
Drink over the next 3-4 years.
