Intense ruby red in colour tending towards garnet. The bouquet reveals an extraordinary complexity with notes of cherries and blackberry jam, followed by hints of dried violet, black chocolate, coffee and tobacco aromas. The palate surprises with its balance, freshness and softness, enhanced by smooth tannins on a rich finish.

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. 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. Allegrini’s properties extend for around 150 hectares in the cradle of the Valpolicella Classica. The unique vineyards yield prestigious wines, stemming from the company’s winemaking style and its exclusively estate-grown grapes. The highest expression of the winery, holding on tight to family roots while keeping a firm focus on innovation and respect for the environment. The love they feel for their land has driven the Allegrini Family to enhance the potential of the Valpolicella area and its winemaking tradition.
