Allegrini’s take on the “Ripasso” method is made from a portion of grapes dried just for this wine. This wine is ruby red in colour with enticing aromas of dried cherry and hints of cloves, cinnamon and vanilla. Velvety in texture, it is well-balanced and offers ripe, juicy dark fruit, with soft tannins and refreshing acidity.
Food pairing - This wine easily pairs with various Italian dishes, above all risottos, especially those flavoured with saffron, porcini mushrooms and pork; classic dishes such as pasta with Amatriciana and Carbonara sauces, baked lasagna, gnocchi with gorgonzola cheese and walnuts; grilled meats and roasts
