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.
This month we show you 3 different high quality wines produced or imported by Allegrini Group.
Oliver Leflaive 2018
Nose of peach, granny apple and lemony scents which lingers in the mouth with nice minerality, a bouquet of freshness and most often iodized notes.
Ageing: 11 months (whose 4 months in stainless steel) 12% in oak barrels, 88% in stainless steel
Poggio al Tesoro 2018
Cabernet Sauvignon 65%, Merlot 25%, Cabernet Franc 10%
Perfectly ripe grapes and painstaking work in the cellar yield a wine with intense notes of fresh fruit and herbs which follow through on the palate, where the wine opens up with great class and silky smoothness.
Ageing: 22 months in 225 litres French oak barriques (70% new, 30% second use)
Corvina Veronese 45%, Corvinone 45%, Rondinella 5%, Oseleta 5%
The impact on the palate is powerful and vigorous, with the wine gradually tapering on the acidic and savoury momentum, extending gently with a clean, dry finish.
Ageing: 18 months in oak, then blended together for 7 months
The Allegrini Company can be considered the result of the intelligence and industriousness of Giovanni Allegrini, an unpretentious, spontaneous man who gave rise to a solid, efficient and innovative agricultural concern.
He began working at a very young age and perfected the art of winemaking, demonstrating superb skills and impassioned enthusiasm.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, Franco and Marilisa, together with his niece Silvia, the daughter of his late son, Walter.
