Description:
Deep ruby in colour, with a warm and spicy bouquet of dried cherries, dense fruit cake and raisins.

Well-structured, complex, elegant and velvety on the palate with plenty of fine fruit character and toasty oak.

Intense and powerful finish.

The Allegrini family's southeast facing vineyards are located in the Valpolicella Classico hills at 180-280m above sea level. The soils are varied, but mostly chalky, stony and well-drained. The older vines are 30 years old on average, pergola trentina trained, with about 3,000 vines per hectare. Newer vines are single Guyot trained with about 5,000 vines per hectare.

80% Corvina Veronese, 15% Rondinella and 5% Oseleta.

Producer Information

The Allegrini family estate covers 100 hectares of vineyard in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico area. The family has been growing grapes here for several generations, founded by Giovanni Allegrini. When he died 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 director of marketing. From the 2007 vintage, Franco sacrificed the Classico status of the Valpolicella and bottled the wine under Stelvin to eliminate as much as possible the problems of cork taint and random oxidation.
