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

Fruity Valpolicella, with cherry and berry character. Fresh, medium palate, with light tannins and a clean finish. Drink now.

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: 2008-2010. Allegrini is one of Veneto'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 house's style.

A delicious, fruity, exuberant, zesty Valpolicello offers notes of black cherries intermixed with crushed almonds and dried herbs. It possesses an excellent texture as well as elegant, medium-bodied flavors crammed with fruit and character. No wood is noticeable, the tannin is sweet, and the acidity is unobtrusive. Drink it over the next 1-2 years.

A medium-bodied wine with moderate alcohol content. Vibrant ruby red in colour, with a fresh cherry aroma. Its aromatic qualities are at their peak when the wine is young, but it has the potential to age for 2-3 years.

This young and vibrant wine is rich with cherry aromas and flavors of cherry and spice on the palate. Medium bodied and light tannins make this wine very approachable.

A tangy, light-bodied Valpolicella, with a spicy baseline to the cherry, green plum and sandalwood notes. Drink now.
