With more than six generations of winegrowing tradition, Allegrini is the most-awarded winery in the Veneto and the benchmark for Amarone. The Allegrini family’s innovations in appassimento winemaking have made the estate’s classic Amarone and Valpolicella wines exemplars of excellence, while their emphasis on single vineyard expressions of local grape varieties has drawn renewed interest in the Veneto. About the Wine: Ruby red in color, with purplish-blue highlights, this wine offers up classic qualities of Corvina, the historic grape variety of the appellation. The fragrant nose is filled with red fruit and aromatic herbs, and the wine’s flavors echo the nose, led by prominent notes of cherries with fresh hints of pepper and more herbs. This young wine is distinctly lively and playful on the palate, while maintaining great elegance and finesse.
