- Once harvested 15% of the grapes are left to dry for 2 months, where they lose about 30% of their original weight. This drying process, known as appassimento, lends a rich complexity to the final wine. Fermentation occurs in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks which helps to retain the freshness. The wine is then aged for 11 months in large Slavonian oak barrels.
- The Allegrini family estate covers 120 hectares of vineyard in the heart of Valpolicella Classico. Although they have been growing grapes here for several centuries, Giovanni Allegrini was the first to start bottling wines from the family's vineyards. When he died in 1983, he passed a passion for and a commitment to quality wine onto his three children - Walter, Marilisa and Franco. Today, Allegrini is widely recognised as one of the best producers from this region.
- The vineyards are located on the hillside of the Valpolicella region at about 180 to 250 metres above sea level. They are south-east facing and the vines are pergola and guyot trained with an average age of 31 years. The soils is extremely varied, mostly clay and calcareous.
- This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 5 years
