Allegrini Valpolicella Classico 2017

External Review:

A medium-bodied wine with moderate alcohol content. Vibrant ruby red in colour, with a fresh cherry aroma. Its aromatic qualities are at their peak when the wine is young, but it has the potential to age for 2-3 years.

The Allegrini Farm is located in Fumane di Valpolicella. For generations, the Allegrini family has lived in this small but important locality of the Valpolicella Classica, handing down the activity of wine growing and the vinification of grapes from generation to generation. Since the XVI century, the components of the family have been among the protagonists of Valpolicella history. The document attesting to the fact that Allegrino Allegrini succeeded in purchasing the right to exploit several "fountains" or "springs" in Mazzurega, a suburb of Fumane, to facilitate irrigation of his property, is dated 1557. Between 1616 and 1630, as testified to by the acts and transcriptions of the time, the Allegrini family was counted among the families in Fumane who owned the most land, which ensured their pre-eminence in local society. Giovanni Allegrini, who was extremely proud, like his predecessors, to belong to the land of Valpolicella and dedicated his many resources and great energy to it, was the head of the new generation. Giovanni was among the first winegrowers to question local practices, revolutionising consolidated habits and speaking clearly about quality; he succeeded in adding oenological know-how to rigorousness in selecting grapes, thus creating a virtuous circle that produced some of the finest wines of the Valpolicella in the Sixties and Seventies of the last century. After his early death in 1983, his three children inherited the company: Walter, responsible for conducting the winegrowing activity, Franco, an oenologist and Marilisa, responsible for marketing. Within a relatively short period of time, they brought the company to a position of leadership in international winegrowing. Read less

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.

I've had a few wines from Allegrini and have generally enjoyed them. This one was reminiscent of the wine I tried to make in my basement a few years ago - I think I ended up pouring most of it out.

Like the love of Romeo & Juliet, this wine is youthful & innocent. Bright fruit & fresh cherry aromas. Can certainly be enjoyed now.

I don't know if I had the same wine as Nick. My friend included this amongst his selection for his wine tasting and it was a popular favourite. Yum!

This young and vibrant wine is rich with cherry aromas and flavors of cherry and spice on the palate. Medium bodied and light tannins make this wine very approachable.

Bright bing cherry flavors race through this zesty, fragrant red. There’s some roundness and depth to it, all managed on a small frame. For a pizza with spicy pepperoni.

The 2010 Valpolicella Classico emerges from the glass with sweet cherries, tobacco, incense and spices. Clean veins of minerality give the wine focus, while floral notes contribute freshness. A dollop of Molinara in the blend adds character. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2015.

Red cherries, cinnamon, flowers and dried herbs come together nicely in the 2009 Valpolicella Classico, a mid-weight, varietally expressive offering from Allegrini. Anticipated maturity: 2010ndash;2012.

Bright red Cherry-vanilla, cassis and fresh herb aromas. Juicy and sweet, offering lush red and dark berry flavors and a repeating note of vanilla. The finish features a tangy cherry note and lingers with good clarity and spicy length.

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.
