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 passed away 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.
Allegrini's Valpolcella has a ruby colour with violet hues. On the nose intense fruity aromas of cherries, enriched with fresh hints of pepper and aromatic herbs. On the palate juicy and snappy, towards a more delicate dimension. Perfect for appetizers and soups, it is ideal with pasta dishes, roasted or grilled white meat and as a summer red wine for fish dishes.
