James Suckling 2pts: A juicy and flavorful red with dried berries, chocolate and hints of walnuts and herbs, following through to a rich finish. Medium body.

Wine Spectator 90pts: Notes of black cherry preserves, delicate spice and fig cake are rich and fragrant in this elegant, medium-bodied red, which is lightly juicy, with creamy tannins that firm the herb- and smoke-laced finish. Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Sangiovese.

Wine Enthusiast 90pts: Ripe dark berry, underbrush and spice aromas lead the nose. The savory, balanced palate offers dried black cherry, star anise and a touch of cinnamon alongside velvety tannins. Enjoy through 2024.

Description

About: The estate is based in Fumane di Valpolicella, just north of Verona in northeastern Italy. Valpolicella, or “valley of many cellars” is an area crossed from north to south by a series of hills, which in succession form three parallel valleys. These valleys are crossed by steep-sided, narrow river beds which remain dry except during spring thaws or autumn rains.

The Allegrini family has been handing down grape growing and wine producing traditions over many generations, playing a major role in the Valpolicella Classico area for many centuries. Giovanni Allegrini was the founder of the new generation. He was extremely proud to be part of the Valpolicella, and dedicated his many resources and energies to this land. He was among the first in questioning local viticultural techniques, revolutionizing accepted practices, and speaking clearly about quality. He was able to combine the science of enology with strict grape selection, and between 1960 and 1970, made some of the Valpolicella’s best wines.

Allegrini’s winemaking philosophy is largely based on the concept of “cru” production: a single vineyard dedicated to the production of local varieties destined to become a single wine. These crus have been a success worldwide: The Palazzo della Torre, La Grola and La Poja have set the highest benchmarks for Valpolicella’s wines.
