Allegrini Valpolicella Classico 2009
|Region||Italy, Veneto, Valpolicella|
This youthful, medium-bodied wine is brilliant ruby red in colour, with a fresh, cherryish perfume. It has a moderate alcohol level. Made from Corvina Veronese, Rondinella and Molinara grapes, the wine's fruity perfume is maximised 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. This is the perfect accompaniment to Italian antipasti, soups, pasta dishes and to the wide variety of dishes that the Mediterranean area has to offer. Valpolicella also compliments roasted and grilled white meats. It is also an ideal summer red to drink with fish dishes.
There's a nice, easy-drinking quality to this informal Valpolicella that comes across as vibrant cherry and forest berry. It's lean and compact on the palate with bright acidity on the close.
