Allegrini Valpolicella Classico 2009
Very smooth supple red that's great to drink all alone. A little understated compared to a lot of the wines I tend to like, but finish won me over.

Winemaker Notes - This youthful, medium-bodied wine is brilliant ruby red in color, with a fresh, cherry perfume. It has a moderate alcohol level. Made from Corvina Veronese, Rondinella and Molinara grapes, the wine's fruity perfume is maximized using a short maceration during the winemaking process. Although best drunk young, to enjoy its aromatic quality to the full, it will age for 2 - 3 years.
