The Allegrini Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2016 is a blend of 45% Corvina, 45% Corvinone, 5% Oseleta and 5% Rondinella. The wine comes from the Valpolicella Classico hills at 180-280 metres above sea level. The varied soils are mostly chalk and clay and are well-drained. The older vines are 30 years old on average, pergola trentina-trained, with about 3,000 vines per hectare. Newer vines are single Guyot trained with about 5,000 vines per hectare.

The grapes are dried at 'Terre di Fumane', a state of the art drying centre with controlled temperature and humidity. Under these conditions, the development of botrytis is avoided and the integrity of the fruit preserved. During the drying period, the grapes lose 40-45% of their original weight. The dried grapes are de-stemmed, crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks at temperatures between 8-22ºC. The wine is then racked into 100% new oak barriques (225 litres) for 18 months. After blending, it spends around seven months in 8,700 litre oak casks, and 14 months in bottle.

Allegrini

About Allegrini The Allegrini family estate covers 120 hectares of vineyard in the heart of Valpolicella Classico. One of the most historically significant wineries in northern Italy, they are a key player in the modern development of Veneto's reputation as a heartland of quality red wines.   Although the family estate has 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. They have worked together to build on Giovanni's quality ethos until Walter's death in 2003. Franco now looks after the vineyards and the winemaking, while Marilisa takes charge of sales and marketing.   Allegrini's Amarone is the iconic symbol of the Valpolicella region, and they have numerous projects across Italy that continue to turn heads.
