Allegrini Corvina Blend Veronese IGT la Poja 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

"Federal Wines, Boston (Peter Hemenway): This is the finest of the Italians. [I] always give this bottle when [I] want to give a fine gift."" From: www.thewinedoctor.com [Review of 1993] A lovely garnet red of moderate intensity, which although fading a little at the rim does not show any real signs of age. The nose is delightful although a little confusing, as it throws up some dark, dense, almost claretty fruit with a little smoke. Meaty, slightly metallic background notes. There is a full, slightly creamy texture, much more so than I recall from my last tasting. Smoky cherry fruit on the palate. Less acidity than one might imagine. Some ripe, succulent tannins through the midpalate which serve to give only pleasure, and some nice extract too. Clean, balanced finish. """

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

Fantastic concentration and lovely tannins. Great character from concentrated fruit. Dark red-to-dark berries, hints of cacao, mullberry. small touch of sweet cacao. The best from Allegrini portfolio, which have the best Amarone (due to their drying invention!)
