"A solid core of curranty fruit with smoky and spicy notes that add complexity. Full-bodied with good balance of smoky fruit and well-integrated, velvety tannins. Drive and length to this. Nicely done. Delicious now, or hold."

Product Description:

The Allegrini family upholds a rich historical legacy of excellence while continuing to push quality through innovation. Allegrini has modernized the appassimento winemaking by numerous measures, notably reducing bitterness and emphasizing desirable phenolic flavor compounds by adding dried fruit to previously vinified, fresh wine in lieu of passing fresh wine over grape pomace, which was traditionally done for Amarone. The Allegrinis pair modern techniques such as site selection by soil type, high density planting and guyot trellising to develop wines that tap into the incredible potential of a renewed approach to this historic region.
