Appellation: Bolgheri Superiore D.O.C.
Grape varieties: Cabernet Franc 100%
Alcohol content: 15% Vol.
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 tautness, making it both powerful and agile.
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 favorable 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.
