Expert Opinion

What our expert says

Located at the top of Podere La Grola, Sant’Ambrogio di Valpolicella, the vineyard comprises 2.65 ha planted in 1979 at 310 metres above sea level, with south-east exposure.  The soil is well-drained calcareous (78.5% chalk) and stony.  Soils are marginally alkaline and combine with the active limestone content to reduce the vines’ vigour.  Double Guyot trained vines with about 4200 vines per hectare, with an average age of 21 years. The yield is 42 Hl/Ha.

Background

History

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.
