Allegrini

Valpolicella, Italy

The Allegrini family has played a leading role in the history of Fumane and Valpolicella Classica since the sixteenth century and has handed down the culture of the vine and wine ever since. The corporate legacy of Giovanni Allegrini, the driving force behind the rebirth of the Valpolicella area, passed into the hands of the new generations: his son and daughter, Walter, Franco and Marilisa. Today the tradition continues with the seventh generation represented by Silvia, Walter’s daughter and Francesco, Franco’s daughter, with Marilisa they lead the Allegrini winery.

The highest expression of the winery, holding on tight to family roots while keeping a firm focus on innovation and respect for the environment. The combination of exceptional-quality raw materials and winemaking tradition is the key to the Allegrini brand’s success.

Allegrini’s properties extend for around 150 hectares in the cradle of the Valpolicella Classica. The unique vineyards yield prestigious wines, stemming from the company’s winemaking style and its exclusively estate-grown grapes. The love they feel for their land has driven the Allegrini Family to enhance the potential of the Valpolicella area and its winemaking tradition. The decisions taken, informed with great far-sightedness, have seen Allegrini become one of the leading wine producers in Italy, and it is precisely in Valpolicella that the new generation of producers looks to Allegrini wines as an essential benchmark.

LA POJA
Corvina Veronese I.G.T.

This year the harvest was long, with slow ripening, and abundant, high-quality grapes. Spring was particularly wet and in early July, due to the considerable number of bunches, we carried out some thinning to restore the equilibrium of the vineyard. A dry period started in July, interspersed with some timely showers…

AMARONE
Della Valpolicella Classico

The best grapes, harvested in the upper hillsides, are left to dry in the drying facility for about 4 months. After a soft pressing, the wine ferments in steel tanks and ages in new barriques for 18 months, in large barrels for 7 months and in the bottle for about 14 months. Harvest 2019 began in mid-September and ended in mid-October…

FIERAMONTE
Amarone della Valpolicella Classico

The grapes are harvested by hand and carefully selected. After overripening in the drying facility, they are destemmed in January and subjected to soft pressing. The wine matures for 48 months in French oak barriques, followed by blending for 6 months in large Slavonian oak barrels…

LA GROLA
Veronese

After fermentation in steel tanks with periodic daily pumping over, the wine ages in second use French oak barrels for 16 months and in large Slavonian barrels for 2 months, followed by ageing in the bottle for 10 months.2020 has certainly not been a lucky year: the pandemic, hurricanes, and hail…

LUGANA
Oasi Mantellina

Compared to Valpolicella Classico, whose vinification process it shares, it ages for 12 months in wood (50% Slavonian oak barrels, 50% barriques). 2020 has certainly not been a lucky year: the pandemic, hurricanes, and hail. Nature, however, was able to surprise us again this time…

SOAVE
D.O.C

Vintage 2022 was a rather different vintage from previous years. Arid conditions as early as February and March meant that by the end of spring the season was ahead of the norm by about 20 days. The sun, the excessive heat, and the lack of rainfall created such a critical situation…
