Description

Allegrini Valpolicella

Allegrini Valpolicella, is juicy and soft, with lively cherry and berry fruit characters on the palate and a fresh, lifted finish and with changes to the Italian wine laws has regained it’s Classico status.

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. Corte Giara is the negociant label of Allegrini. The wines are made by Allegrini from fruit bought in from outside their own vineyards.

The Allegrini company may be considered the result of the intelligence and hard work of Giovanni Allegrini, who was a straight forward, instinctive man who built an agricultural concern that was solid, efficient and innovative.

He started working at a very young age and perfected the art of wine-making with great skill and an all-encompassing passion. http://website.allegrini.it/en/famiglia_volti.php

He was given the evocative nickname & ldquo; the barrel spider” because in the cellar he would proudly invite guests to taste his wine, and whilst listening to comments and opinions, spring like a spider from one precious barrel to another.

The life-style, history and culture of Giovanni still represent, today, the key to understanding the philosophy and reasons behind the success of Allegrini.

After the premature death of Giovanni in1983, his three offspring took over the company and have run it ever since with impassioned enthusiasm and ever-increasing skill and competence.

After having explored ways of improving the local vinification techniques, Franco and his brother Walter also gradually introduced important innovations into the vineyards: they carried out wide-ranging experiments with the Corvina grape, which is the dominant variety in Valpolicella and one of the most interesting Italian autochthonous grapes.

Its merits may be appreciated in La Poja, the company’s ‘cult’ wine made with 100%Corvina. Over time, the vine-training in the Family’s vineyards – the Trentino pergola (trellis) system, traditionally used in Valpolicella – was substituted by other systems to increase plant density.

Finally, a densely planted vineyard was created using the international varietals Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah in the flatlands of Villa Giona.
