The Allegrini family has played a leading role in the history of Fumane and Valpolicella Classica since the 16th century and has handed down the culture of the vine and wine ever since.
The company, which is among the most important landowning families, experienced a profound period of transformation starting in the 1960s with Giovanni Allegrini. Recognized as one of the greatest architects of the rebirth of Valpolicella, Giovanni perfected the art of winemaking, meticulously selecting the grapes and introducing some important innovations in viticulture and oenology.
An elegant, harmonious wine with considerable structure and aromaticity. Ruby red in colour with purplish hues, it initially reveals sophisticated notes of vanilla, black pepper and cloves, echoed by gentle nuances of raisined grapes. On the palate it is velvety, with soft tannins and a long and persistent finish.
