VINTAGE : 2019
COUNTRY : Italy
REGION/APPELLATION : Veneto, Valpolicella
VARIETAL : Amarone
Layers of dark chocolate, black olive and espresso add dimension, while a note of peppery spice lingers on the finish. A creamy and harmonious red, medium- to full-bodied, featuring light, dusty tannins that frame the flavors of baked black cherry, date, grilled thyme and loamy earth. Allegrini Valpolicella Classico is ruby red in color 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 and Corvinone, the historic varietals of this appellation. When it is young, it is impressively lively and playful on the palate, whereas two years later, it expresses greater delicacy and finesse. From Valpolicella Classico D.O.C.
