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

Strawberry grape nose. Surprisingly full-bodied for 13% alcohol. Medium tannins and acidity. Simpleish, but pleasant. Interesting. $16

Soft and fresh with a full color and juicy low tannin mouth this was a great pick for a table with a mixed menu. Worked with her grilled salmon and my veal. I would not call it simple but it is an uncomplicated, fruit driven wine that is full bodied and developed but without oak or any excess of tannins and a lovely long finish.

Red cherries, cinnamon, flowers and dried herbs come together nicely in the 2009 Valpolicella Classico, a mid-weight, varietally expressive offering from Allegrini. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2012.

A young wine with aromas of blackberry, bitter chocolate and espresso. The flavors veer toward plum, apple skins and more chocolate. The finish is full and round, with firm tannins.

The 2007 Valpolicella Classico offers up an attractive array of wild herbs, rosemary and cherries on a medium-bodied frame. This pretty, soft Valpolicella offers excellent depth and a long, clean finish. Anticipated maturity: 2008ndash;2010. Allegrini is one of Venetorsquo;s historic estates. The entire range is consistent, and the entry-level wines are a great starting point for readers who want to discover the housersquo;s style.

A perfumed, fragrant, medium-bodied wine, this soft 1998 Valpolicella is redolent with black cherry fruit and spice. Cleanly made, with an attractive, open-knit texture, this effort will have many admirers. Drink it over the next year.
