Allegrini Valpolicella Classico 2007
Allegrini Valpolicella Classico 2007 is a perfect example of Valpolicella done right and at a fair price. A great example of its type, Allegrini Valpolicella Classico 2007 will be a terrific accompaniment to a summers picnic and saw me through an afternoon re-run of the Formula One GP, a perfect wine to relax with.
Allegrini are one of the top producers in the Veneto and one of my personal favourites (you'll notice them mentioned a few times on the blog). They are pioneers in the area and produce some exceptional wines including a blend "La Grola" (Corvina Veronese, Rondinella, Syrah and Sangiovese) and a 100% Corvina wine "La Poja" that regularly scoop all the top scores and awards as well as a magnificent Amarone of which I like to keep a magnum or two in the house at all times.

A striking ruby red in the glass the wine is hugely aromatic and attacks your nostrils as you uncork the wine. Lively notes of glazed cherry and herbs on the nose with a light-mid bodied palate with some cherry fruit on the mid-palate. The wine has good acidity and is a typical Valpolicella Classico with a bitter note on the finish. 86 Points
