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. The Allegrini family has played a leading role in the history of Fumane and Valpolicella Classica since the 16th century and has handed down the culture of the vine and wine ever since.
When Giovanni Allegrini decided to plant only Corvina grapes on the top of La Grola in 1979, motivated by a great passion for his beloved Valpolicella, he did not imagine the extraordinary success this wine would achieve. The superior-quality viticulture and the perfect microclimate on this approximately 3-hectare plateau, whose white limestone surface dazzles in the sun, yield the best grapes that the Valpolicella can produce, to make this extraordinary and iconic Allegrini cru.
Only perfectly ripe Corvina grapes are used in this deep and sophisticated wine where fruit, spices and balsamic notes blend perfectly. On the palate, the wine reveals texture and lightness, warmth and dynamism, richness and simplicity, as only truly great wines can express.
Ideal with roast red meat and game. Excellent paired with non-sharp, mature cheeses, porcini mushroom dishes, and black and white truffles.
