A giant of the region, the name of Allegrini is virtually synonymous with Valpolicella, with evidence linking the family name to wine production in their native Fumane as long ago as the 16th century. The current azienda dates back merely to 1854, but perhaps owes its modern reputation to 20th century postwar patriarch Giovanni Allegrini, whose sharp eye for innovation and for sites with massive, untapped potential was unparalleled in its day.
Today’s Allegrini has over 100 hectares under vine in the historic Valpolicella Classica area alone, of which the pride and joy are surely La Grola, La Poja, and the Palazzo della Torre vineyards, planted by Giovanni himself having fallen into desuetude and disrepair. His careful work and openness to modern techniques such as the judicious use of French barriques as well as Slavonian botti revitalised these sites, now recognised as among the most important and prestigious in the appellation.
