Allegrini

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. — 16 days ago

Le Muraie Ripasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore Corvina Blend

Medium bodied with slight leather & tobacco notes in a nice way! Very nice. Lovely change from Cabs. More like a nice Merlot in weight and feel. Loving a 2015 vintage on 12/10/19! — a day ago

Ripasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore Corvina Blend 2010

Drinking a 2010 vintage in December 2019 and this wine is still drinking quite well and it could be argued that it’s at or near it’s peak. Excellent nose, beautiful color and lasting finish. Pairs well with red meats, stews, soups, cheeses and breads. Also roasted pork dishes that are more flavorful. Glad I bought a case and cellared it for several years. — 8 days ago

Blackcurrant, semi easy. Good Ripasso for just chatting and drinking, or with some cheese or food (even steak) — 5 days ago

Omigod omigod Omigod. So many O’s all for Valpolicella. This is SO GOOD I can’t even but I will. Smells like red fruits and plums and cinnamon and cedar. Tastes elegantly rich, like all the things you smelled put on a crown and a velvet cape and took to an autumn’s night absorbing the flavors of fallen leaves and bitter licorice. Goodness gracious. This wine is an opera. — 21 days ago
