The Allegrini family estate covers 100 hectares of vineyard in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico area...The family has been growing grapes here for six generations, but the estate in its current form was founded by Giovanni Allegrini. When he died in 1983, it passed to his three children, who ran it together until Walter's death in July 2003. Franco now looks after the vineyards and is the winemaker, and Marilisa is director of marketing.
Made from 60% Corvina Veronese, 35% Rondinella and 5% Molinara vinified in stainless steel tanks. This wine is characterized by fresh, cherry-like perfumes, moderate alcohol levels and balanced acidity. The wine‰۪s fruity perfume is maximized by using a short maceration period during the winemaking process. It is lively and easy to drink with moderate tannins and a bright, vivacious colour. Enjoy this wine while it is still young and exhibits its most fragrant and intense fruit.
