Allegrini, Valpolicella 2008 The nose smells of sweet black fruit. The fruitiness repeats on the palate with a light sense of tannin and long acidity – nice.
These are notes from our tasting at the estate in the summer of ’09 and the wine is now available in California in the spring of 2010. The grapes are traditionally 60% Corvina, 35% Rondinella and 5% Molinara and the wine sees no oak during production. Estate bottled in Fumane di Valpolicella 13% purchased for $14.99 at Traverso’s Allegrini
