Opulent, traditional, fresh.
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 and balsamic aromas are woven with opulent chocolate liqueur spice and faint herbal undertones. Dried fruits, espresso, chocolate savoury spice and herbal flavours mimic the nose. It has a port-like concentration but plenty of acidity to maintain freshness. Lengthy and potent, it's a gorgeous wine.
