The Allegrini family has been making wine in Valpolicella for several generations, though it was Giovanni Allegrini who really put this estate on the map through his innovative methods both in the vineyards and in the cantina. Today it is run by Giovanni`s children: Franco, who manages the vines, and Marilisa for the marketing of the wines. There are 45 hectares of vines which are situated in the townships of Fumane, Sant`Ambrogio and Marano. Allegrini produces an outstanding range of wines that includes Valpolicella Classicos, single vineyard Valpolicellas, Amarones and Reciotos. They are all made in a modern, intensely fruit-driven style, and the Amarone, in particular, is outstanding.
