This is a really affordable, reliable and widely available red from Allegrini.  It’s a blend of Corvina and Rondinella grapes – don’t ask me for any French analogs, I have no idea.  And there’s a bit of Sangiovese chucked in.  This makes for a complex, multidimensional wine.  Blackberry and cherry notes but it’s still dry and not too sweet.  They blend the wine with dried grapes just like an Amarone.  This gives it a heft and a deep red color.  Luckily, it does not have the road tar consistency of an Amarone.  At under $20 it’s  a great value for this level of quality.
