More About This Wine
Allegrini's wine-making history stretches back to the 16th century. In the mid-20th century, Giovanni Allegrini modernized the operation, sought out national and international markets for his wine, and before he died, in 1983, purchased the La Grola vineyard, now the jewel in the Allegrini crown. Today, Giovanni's children, Franco and Marilisa, manage Allegrini's diverse portfolio.

Good deep ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of redcurrant and crushed rock, with a red berry liqueur-like nuance. Supple, lush and sweet, but with surprising acidity and a recurring mineral quality energizing the middle palate. Finishes with smooth tannins and very good length. This has the stuffing to age but also offers considerable upfront appeal.
