At Harry’s on Buderim Restaurant. Colour is mid crimson. Aromas of earth and red fruits, cherries in particular carrying over to the palate. Clean fruit - Light to medium weight with mild Tannins and acid - a savoury lively tang. Not for long cellaring - drink now. Always liked the wines from Allegrini. Went well with Pork Belly.

Medium ruby colour with fine tears. The nose is clean and varietal with loads of red and blue fruits (strawberry and blueberry) alongside confectionary notes. The palate is medium bodied, with light and fine ripe tannin, a hint of acidity and layers of primary red fruits (fresh cherry, confit strawberry and raspberry) there’s a boiled Lolly like juicy ness to this wine and barely and obvious oak. Unmistakable as young corvina, designed for drinking in its youth. Balanced and drinkable it is.

Smooth, light tannins, slight acidity, fruity, velvety. Nice with eggplant and tomato-sauce based pasta.

🎅 Advent 📆 Day 1️⃣7️⃣

Nice halfy @ £11 if enjoyed w/ food such as 🍕 but wayyy too sweet for me on its own - almost Primitivo like - Santa’s confused 🤔 apparently this was Monday’s but Mrs E got it mixed up 🤣

🍷 Vibrant clear ruby

👃 Sweet fresh ripe red cherry, red berry, almond dust & icing sugar

👄 Sweet Med body of bright lively red fruits but not a lot else to pick up on as so sweet 😬

🎯 Long sweet red fruity mouthful

Tastes of unripe red plums with a hint of vanilla. Not terribly complex but well balanced & fruity

Our first Valpolicella. In my ignorance paired it with steak salad and was disappointed initially by a subtlety I appreciated only after the meal.

Looking forward to trying again either on its own or more appropriately paired.
