Description

The Allegrini family estate covers 100 hectares of vineyards in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico area. The family has been growing grapes here for six generations, but Giovanni Allegrini founded the estate in its current form. 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 the marketing director.

You can see Lake Garda from the top of La Grola vineyard which Giovanni Allegrini bought in 1979 to create Valpolicella’s first single vineyard Corvina. Intense yet elegant with a bouquet of wild berries, juniper, tobacco and coffee.
