SPECIFICATIONS

TASTING NOTES

The Allegrini company is certainly an illustrious name in Italy and one of the most historic in Valpolicella. Right from the start, an extremely young Giovanni Allegrini showed great vinification skills as well as paying particular attention to the vineyard. After his death in 1983, his children Franco and Marilisa took over the company. The winery is located in Fumane, on the outskirts of Verona, in the heart of Valpolicella, one of the most prestigious and interesting areas of the Italian wine scene, and where the famous Amarone della Valpolicella is produced. It is located in western Veneto, between Verona and Lake Garda, bounded to the north by the Lessini Mountains and extending for about 240 km² with a vineyard area of about 6,000 hectares. Recioto Classico della Valpolicella Giovanni Allegrini is a sweet wine produced from 40% Corvina Veronese grapes, 40% Corvinone grapes, 15% Rondinella grapes, and 5% Oseleta grapes. It is fermented in stainless steel and then aged for 14 months in wood followed by another 10 months in the bottle. Like Amarone, it is produced through the partial drying of the grapes, but is distinguished by the natural interruption of the fermentation process before all of the sugar is transformed into alcohol. A sweet wine with an intense ruby red colour, it has a spicy bouquet with notes of dried fruits and a tasty and persistent length. It is ideal for the most important of occasions and perfect for pairing with a selection of cheeses. Read more Read less
