This single-vineyard red contains 5 percent Sangiovese, along with indigenous Veronese grapes Corvino and Rondinella. It has set the tone for modern, exciting reds from the region of Valpolicella. It is made from both freshly harvested and dried grapes, the Allegrini familyrsquo;s interpretation of the traditional ripasso method.

This wine is a blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Sangiovese (the latter replacing the traditional Molinara). Seventy percent of the grapes are vinified immediately, with the rest left to dry until December, then vinified and re-fermented with the wine made from the fresh grapes. The result is a round, smooth, concentrated and highly extracted wine to enjoy with roasted vegetables or roasted beef or lamb.

Lots of black fruit, violet and mineral character. Full-bodied, with densely packed fruit on a rounded, expansive palate, with well-integrated tannins and a long, fruity, minerally finish. Delicious now, but should open up even more. A great value at this score. Best after 2004.
