Allegrini Valpolicella DOC
Country: Italy, Valpolicella
Tasting Notes: 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.
Varietal: Blend of Corvina Veronese 65%, Rondinella 30%, Molinara 5%
Pairing: 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. Serve preferably at 16°C (61°F) and open the bottle shortly before drinking.
