Rustic, fresh, cherries.
Family owned since 1956, Cantine Aldegheri is 50 hectares of vineyards, and a winery located in Sant' Ambrogio di Valpolicella.
Using mainly the indigenous local varieties Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara, they also have plantings of Dindarella, Cabernet, Merlot, Garganega and Pinot.
Cherry aromas are muddled with leather, dried plum, spice and mocha, notes echoed on the palate. Dried cherries, juicy forest berries and vanilla, earth and spice flavours dominate the palate. Lovely freshness here, a Ripasso on the leaner more traditional side with classic rustic character and bitter medium-length finish.
