The result of the Allegrini family’s expertise, a true classic of the appellation, this red wine embraces tradition, territory and the know-how of country ways. Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Oseleta are left to air dry at least until December and are checked daily to ensure perfectly healthy grapes. Lengthy refining and ageing finally yields a red wine that has become emblematic of Italian oenology, alongside Barolo and Brunello di Montalcino. It has imposing structure and depth, as much in its aromas of mature fruit and spices, as on the palate, where the alcohol is sustained by the right degree of acidity and refined tannins.
Ruby sloping down on inked shades.
Olfactory emanation calibrated on warm notes of withered violets, both ripe and confitured blackberries, sweet spices and tomato confit that converge towards darker aromas of wet fur, willow bark, Tuscan cigar, cocoa beans and resin.
The taste reveals a broad and robust structure that does not yield a millimeter in elegance and clarity; the various components appear merged into each other to compose a precious harmony culminating in a mineral, clear and tenacious finish.
