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.This wine was long cellared post bottling in cellar for three years before release.
Expect an earthy wine with fresh and dried cherries, balsamico, crushed roses and pipe tobacco, shaved chocolate, espresso, brown spices, wet cedar and clay aromas. It boasts a sweet and generous entry and liqueur-like character. The dried cherries are more pronounced in the mouth, it is fleshy and classic with a slick texture and long fresh finish.
A gorgeous wine.
