Tasting notes: 
This is the winery’s most important wine, produced with 100% Cabernet Franc, and dedicated by Marilisa and Franco to their late brother Walter. Its richness is evident at first sight, confirmed on the nose by perfectly interwoven, profound aromas of black-berried fruit, pepper and balsamic hints of eucalyptus. The palate astonishes for its ability to sustain this imposing structure with a light tartness, making it both powerful and agile.

Food pairings: Particularly suited for juicy, well-seasoned meat such as quail, lamb, pigeon, duck, hare and braised meats with red wine sauces. Perfect to accompany premium, full-flavoured cheeses. Serve at 16/18°C (64/68°F) in large wine glasses

Bolgheri"s terroir, with its proximity to the sea and the particularly favourable exposure to the sun, allows Cabernet Franc to thrive. In this microclimate, Cabernet Franc vinified as a single varietal enhances its spicy nuances and gains elegance and depth. The wine is named after Walter Allegrini and symbolizes the love he felt for this land.

The Grape
Cab.Franc

Cabernet Franc is widely planted in Bordeaux and is the most important black grape grown in the Loire. In the Médoc it may constitute up to 15% of a typical vineyard - it is always blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and is used to add bouquet and complexity to the wines. It is more widely used in St.Emilion where it adapts well to the cooler and moister clay soils - Cheval Blanc is the most famous Cabernet Franc wine in the world, with the final blend consisting of up to 65% of the grape.

Cabernet Franc thrives in the Loire where the cooler growing conditions serve to accentuate the grape`s herbaceous, grassy, lead pencil aromas. The best wines come from the tuffeaux limestone slopes of Chinon and Bourgeil where growers produce intense well-structured wines that possess excellent cellaring potential.
