The Allegrini family estate encompasses 70 hectares of vineyard situated in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico area. The Allegrini family have been growing grapes in Valpolicella for several generations, though the estate in its current form was founded by Giovanni Allegrini. When he died in 1983, the estate 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. The grapes are dried at Terre di Fumane, in the state of the art drying centre, where humidity and temperature are carefully controlled. By drying the grapes under these conditions, the development of botrytis is avoided, and the integrity of the fruit is preserved. The resulting Recioto is clean, pure and modern in style.
This wine has a good depth of ruby red colour, with perfumes of dried cherries and a touch of spice from the oak ageing. On the palate the wine is sweet, but not cloying, with good intensity of dark, almost fruit cake flavours and remarkable power. Excellent length, with perfumes of spiced, dried cherries on the finish.
