Winemaker's Notes: The result of the Allegrini family's expertise and a true classic of the appellation, this red wine embraces tradition, territory and the know-how of this spectacular region. Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Oseleta are left to air dry at least until December, checked daily to ensure perfectly healthy grapes. Lengthy refining and aging 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.


93 Points Wine Spectator - "A lovely, harmonious red, with plump and juicy dried cherry and strawberry fruit, abundant aromatic spice and herb notes, and accents of graphite, mocha, mineral and licorice. This really sings on the palate and keeps on chiming on the supple finish. Drink now through 2026. 10,000 cases made."

93 Points Wine Enthusiast - "Full-bodied and firmly structured, this offers aromas of dark cherry, mocha, blue flower and a whiff of exotic spice. The concentrated palate doles out black cherry, raspberry jam, raisin, chocolate and baking spice alongside velvety tannins. Drink 2017–2023."

91 Points James Suckling - "Lots of raisin and sultana aromas with hints of figs. Full body with soft, silky tannins. Lots of new wood too. A modern, intense red. More new wood than in the past but shows lots of fruit as always. Wait and see: Try in 2016."
