Allegrini La Poja Vineyards in Valpolicella Classico, Italy

The Allegrini family estate covers 120 hectares of vineyard in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico region of northeastern Italy. Although they have 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 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. From the 2007 vintage, Franco sacrificed the Classico status of the Valpolicella and bottled the wine under Stelvin to eliminate cork taint and random oxidation problems as much as possible.

The Valpolicella has a lovely intensity of red cherry fruit, lifted perfumes and a ripe yet zesty character on the palate. 'La Grola', sleek and beguiling, sets the standard by which all other wines from Valpolicella are judged. The ‘Palazzo della Torre’, a 'baby Amarone' produced by Allegrini's unique approach to the ripasso method, is plush and rounded. Their Amarone is outstanding, intense yet balanced. The ‘Fieramonte’ Amarone Riserva comes from a single vineyard and is produced in very limited quantities (3,000 bottles) with a strict selection of only the best fruit. The wine is an extremely powerful and unique Amarone. 'La Poja' is Allegrini’s flagship wine. Made solely from Corvina, it is the original - and still the finest - 'super Veronese'.
