Blend: 70% Corvina Veronese, 25% Rondinella, 5% Sangiovese

Tasting Notes

This is one of the wines that has made Allegrini famous throughout the world. The vineyard surrounds Villa della Torre, a splendid masterpiece of Renaissance architecture now owned by the family, and produces a full-bodied red wine that has an ageing potential of at least ten years. The blend is the historic combination of Corvina and Rondinella with the addition of a small quantity of Sangiovese. A small percentage of the harvested grapes are left to dry out until December and then added to the previously vinified fresh grapes. The result is a velvety, well-balanced red wine that proffers mature, pulpy fruit.

Serving Suggestion

Easily pairs with various Italian dishes, above all risottos, especially those flavored with saffron, porcini mushrooms and pork; classic dishes such as pasta with amatriciana and carbonara sauces, baked lasagna, gnocchi with gorgonzola cheese and walnuts; grilled meats and roasts. This wine also excels when matched with Parma ham and fine-cured zibello pork loin, as well as medium-matured cheeses, especially parmigiano reggiano, pecorino and Monte Veronese.

Wine Spectator

89 points - Wine Spectator // A creamy, medium-bodied red, with a pretty nose of floral and herb notes, this offers light tannins and flavors of dried cherry, spice and mineral, set in a round, balanced frame. Drink now through 2021. 37,600 cases imported. å_åÑåÐAN (December, 2018)

Wine Enthusiast

90 points - Wine Enthusiast // Forest floor, mature plum, menthol and exotic spice aromas lift out of the glass. On the smooth, savory palate, fine-grained tannins wrap around dried cherry, prune and star anise. Drink through 2021. -Kerin Oå_åÑÌöKeefe (March, 2019)

James Suckling

94 points - James Suckling // A very spicy nose with dried blueberries, Christmas cake, blackberry pudding, tar, treacle tart, roasted herbs and balsamic. Full body, ripe and round tannins and a finish that shows real verve and life, thanks to a wave of refreshing acidity. Drink now or hold. (November, 2018)
