Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2017

Lighter, easy- going and just all around tasty. Haven’t had a Valpolicella in a while. They go with a wide range of foods. We had it with a chick pea salad and it was not overpowering. I’ve got to start drinking more Valpolicella. — 6 days ago

La Grola Limited Edition Corvina Blend 2010

En glömd butelj, långt ner i källarn. Hade inga förhoppningar när den öppnades, men blev glatt överraskad! Mogna körsbär och fat i form av kakao och kaffe. Balanserad syra och sandiga (fin sand) tanniner. — 2 months ago


Villa Cavarena Valpolicella Ripasso Corvina Blend

Sept 28, 2019. J2’s 5th bonus year celebration. TW Concierge offering April 2017. Purchased this and the Amarone. This is s solid Ripasso. Tart cherries, of course but not overpowering. Smooth, no pepper, hint of chocolate. 70% Corvina, 30% Rondinella. I believe Villa Cavarena is an Allegrini family label, from their Co-op? Definitely Allegrini quality and for <$20/bottle, what’s not to like??? — 5 months ago


Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2014

Dinner with co-workers during one of my monthly visits to our greater Atlanta office.

Decent bottle, needed lots of air to get going, luckily proper stemware was provided.
Mostly ripe, dark fruits, dried cherry, licorice, enjoyable.

Giovanni Allegrini

Giovanni Recioto della Valpolicella Classico 2012

🙈 tasting 4th wine
at wset level 2 course (6th meeting)
the class subject was 🇮🇹
four reds were poured

my guess was that it'll probably be nebbiolo, barbera, sangiovese and amarone. i came close.

besides the one with appassimento treatment guessing what is each one is far behind my tastebuds (for now 😊)

brownish red 👀

ripe fruit, recurrent, black cherry, eucalyptus, clove, smoke, and some meat. 💪 👃

medium sweetness.
high acidity.
medium tannins.
full body.

🍬, ripe red fruit, mint, vanilla and caramel 👄

long long 🎯

this was so thick i just couldn't spit it!
very (very) bold but a tiny bit is superb.

@manyardo lovesall I remember that Falanghina! I like a well made Soave too. Never tried the Allegrini but can recommend Pieropan’s Soave Classico, it is quite nice...


Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2014

Giovanni Allegrini was the founder of the new generation and revolutionized changes to accepted practices. A blend of Corvina Veronese 45%, Corvinone 45%,Rondinella 5% & Oseleta 5%, deep Ruby with aromas of dried dark fruits, spice and herb, about 120 days of appassimento. Palate shows ripe cherry and strawberry flavors with fig, cacao, flint and mineral tones. Soft smooth tannins well balanced with acidity on a long spicy finish. Will continued to get better. Tasting Sample. — 3 months ago
