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.

As the vines are double guyot trained (rather than the traditional Pergola), there was no need for the ripasso technique to be used. Maceration lasted for 11-12 days during which pumping over took place daily. Malolactic fermentation took place in November. The wine was then racked into oak where it matured for 16 months before spending a further 2 months in tank before bottling. The wine was then matured in bottle for ten months before release.

Tasting Notes
A full-bodied wine, intense and elegant. Deep ruby red in colour, it has a wide bouquet with scents of wild berries and juniper, tobacco and coffee essence. Concentrated and powerful on the palate, it is packed with wild cherry flavours and supple tannins. A lifted finish accentuates the characteristic cherry pie perfumes.
