Allegrini Valpolicella 2017
|Region||Italy, Veneto, Valpolicella|
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 and Corvinone, the historic varietals 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. This type of Valpolicella is the perfect accompaniment to Italian antipasti, soups, pasta dishes and other dishes typical of Mediterranean cuisine. Also pairs well with roasted and grilled white meats and is ideal as a summer red to drink with fish dishes.
Light, well-cut tannins define expressive flavors of crushed cherry and raspberry, wild herb and spicy mineral in this stylish, medium-bodied red. Drink now through 2021. 17,000 cases imported.
