Italy → Veneto → Valpolicella
esbrown reviewed Allegrini Valpolicella Classico 2003 on May 26, 2005
An decent food wine with a nice mix of earth and fruit. Aromas of cool baked fruits, smoke, mushrooms and a touch of fat inch their way out of the glass. More of the dark cherries and blueberries on the palette but also cedar, bacon, dry leaves and a somewhat bitter, oaky finish. Slightly out of balance, I was hoping for more developed flavors and less oak.
