The Allegrini Farm is located in Fumane di Valpolicella. For generations, the Allegrini family has lived in this small but important locality of the Valpolicella Classica, handing down the activity of wine growing and the vinification of grapes from generation to generation. Since the XVI century, the components of the family have been among the protagonists of Valpolicella history. The document attesting to the fact that Allegrino Allegrini succeeded in purchasing the right to exploit several "fountains" or "springs" in Mazzurega, a suburb of Fumane, to facilitate irrigation of his property, is dated 1557. Between 1616 and 1630, as testified to by the acts and transcriptions of the time, the Allegrini family was counted among the families in Fumane who owned the most land, which ensured their pre-eminence in local society. Giovanni Allegrini, who was extremely proud, like his predecessors, to belong to the land of Valpolicella and dedicated his many resources and great energy to it, was the head of the new generation. Giovanni was among the first winegrowers to question local practices, revolutionising consolidated habits and speaking clearly about quality; he succeeded in adding oenological know-how to rigorousness in selecting grapes, thus creating a virtuous circle that produced some of the finest wines of the Valpolicella in the Sixties and Seventies of the last century. After his early death in 1983, his three children inherited the company: Walter, responsible for conducting the winegrowing activity, Franco, an oenologist and Marilisa, responsible for marketing. Within a relatively short period of time, they brought the company to a position of leadership in international winegrowing. Read less

Allegrini Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOCG 2008 displays ripe and raisiny aromas on the nose, with floral and mineral notes. Allegrini Amarone della Valpolicrella Classico DOCG 2008 is full-bodied, with thick, raisiny fruit, fine fruit-coated tannins and a long mineral finish. Best to allow the wine to breathe/decant an hour before drinking.

Das Bouquet ist verführerisch (feine Noten von Bittermandel, reifen Beeren und Steinobst), kompakt und vielschichtig. Sowohl im Glas wie auch im Gaumen überzeugt der Amarone della Valpolicella Classico von DOMÌNI VENETI durch seine Komplexität und seine Konzentration. Der Grund dafür liegt in der Weinbereitung, die das Trocknen der kerngesunden, reifen Trauben während drei Monaten in Kistchen voraussetzt. Das Resultat: ein imposanter, mächtiger Rotwein voller Eleganz, Dichte und tiefgründiger Struktur, der zu Recht in die Gruppe der grossen Weine Italiens einzuordnen ist.

Kräftiges Aroma von Gewürzen, Tabak, schwarzen Kirschen, Kompott- und Schokoladennuancen. Im Gaumen dicht und konzentriert mit präsenten und angenehmen Tanninen und sehr langem Abgang.

Sehr komplexes Bouquet mit einem Feuerwerk reiffruchtiger Aromen von Backpflaumen, Feigen, gekochte Kirschen, ergänzt mit feinen Röstkomponenten (Schokolade, Pilze, Unterholz). Im Gaumen füllig-weicher reiffruchtiger Auftakt, viel Stoff und Kraft, sehr eleganter Körper und runde, feine Gerbstoffe, sehr lang im Abgang mit Aromen von Kirschenmarmelade und Nüssen.

Der Amarone von Allegrini steht quasi als Ikone für eine ganze Region. Dunkle Fruchtaromen und ein Strauss an Gewürzen begleiten den umwerfend eleganten Körper bis in den langen Abgang.
