Allegrini Valpolicella 2021
|Region||Italy, Veneto, Valpolicella|
This is REAL Valpolicella! And there are few – if any – who are more highly regarded than the Allegrini family, true artisans and champions of quality Valpolicella. Lovely bright red colour and lifted morello cherry scent – ripe red cherry fruit flavours and a light touch of liquorice.
This wine's aromas are captivating. The nose is a true sensory experience, with notes of wild berries mixed with hints of herbs, bell peppers and forest floor. The palate continues with a mix of blueberries, strawberries, subtle dried herbal notes, savory spices and fine tannins. The palate vibrates with the right amount of acidity to keep it all together on the finish.
The 2021 Valpolicella Classico wafts up with a blend of citrus-tinged cherries contrasted by brown spice hints. This is wonderfully fresh and spicy, focused on purity, with pretty red fruits and inner florals. While a bit short, it leaves the palate completely refreshed.
A lively, light- to medium-bodied red, with a thread of fragrant, dusty spices and light, snappy tannins layered with bright, ripe black cherry, blackberry and boysenberry fruit, tangy orange peel acidity and dried herb and floral notes.
