Wine tasting notes

This wine is ruby red in colour, with youthful highlights. Fragrant fruit with prominent notes of dark cherries are echoed by fresher hints of pepper and aromatic herbs, typical of Corvina and its genetic cousin Corvinone, the historic varieties of this appellation. This Valpolicella is impressively lively and playful on the palate, whilst exhibiting delicacy and finesse at the same time.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2015) - 86 pts

May 2017 - Allegrini's 2015 Valpolicella is a fresh and plump red wine with easy appeal. Corvina Veronese makes up most of the blend at 65% and the rest of the wine is Rondinella (30%) and Molinara (5%). The bouquet is raw and fruity in character with bright primary flavors of white plum, cherry and forest berry. There are subtle hints of herb and cola as well. The finish is simple and slightly sour. Pair this fruity Valpolicella with take out pizza.


Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2012) - 87 pts

Mar 14 - Allegrini's 2012 Valpolicella Classico jumps from the glass with juicy dark plums, spices, licorice and dried herbs. This tasty, value-priced red is best enjoyed over the next year or two.

Tasted June 2010. Grass, black fruit. Simple, light blueberry, spice and light tannins.(RH).


Wine Spectator (2014) - 87 pts

A spicy undertow and light tannins are layered with flavors of plum tart, raspberry and smoky mineral in this well-balanced, light- to medium-bodied red. Fresh and tangy.


James Suckling (2014) - 91 pts

Oct 2015 - A fresh, fruity red with lemon, dried-cherry and raspberry aromas and flavors. Medium body, bright acidity and a clean finish. Drink or hold.


Wine Enthusiast (2012) - 87 pts

Here’s a delightful Valpolicella that offers immediate drinkability. It features succulent black cherry, red currant and white pepper flavors along with smooth tannins and fresh acidity. Pair this with rich pastas or spicy grilled chicken. — K.O. (12/1/2013)


Tom Cannavan (2013)

Wine of the Week June 2 2014 - It is mostly made from Corvina, unoaked, and blended with some Rondinella and other local varieties. It has a wonderfully soaring nose, like walking through a field of summer flowers, with hugely ripe red cherry and a buoyant, crunchy freshness. On the palate nothing changes: the abundance and generosity of the fruit fills the mouth, though there is enough tannin and a fine line of acidity, to keep it sharply focused and beautifully balanced. A fabulous summer wine this.
