A Taster's Journey is a newsletter on food, wine and travel. After 15 years of studying, tasting, teaching, and selling wine, I created this newsletter to not only share my passion about wine, but of food and travel as well. Each month I hope to share wines that I am drinking, food that is in season, restaurants that I have enjoyed, and places I have traveled. Enjoy!"


Wine Of The Month: Allegrini Valpolicella Classico ’02 ($12)

March 18th, 2005

Valpolicella is an easy drinking wine that is perfect for springtime, and Allegrini is one of the best producers. This wine is produced in the Veneto region of northeastern Italy, and it’s a blend of three grapes (Corvina, Rondinella, and Molinara). It has a medium body with flavors of cherry, plum and spice. This wine is particularly well balanced, the fruit and acidity are in perfect harmony. Allegrini Valpolicella would pair well with chicken, pork chops, and seafood. I think this is a really nice wine, and is a great value. It should be easy to find at your favorite retail store or online.
