The Allegrini family has been a staple in Veneto since the 16th century, having passed the winemaking tradition down through six generations. Giovanni Allegrini gets the credit for making them into the modern day powerhouse that they are. He’s a true pioneer in Valpolicella who questioned old, commonly used techniques and revolutionized new practices that have now been adopted by most everyone.
The key to their success is not a secret; it’s a very deliberate strategy that has paid dividends. While most winemakers favored production quantity, the Allegrinis have always focused on quality and the concept of ‘Cru’ production. I guess it’s easy for them, with over 240 acres of some of the best real estate in all of Italy.
And while their Amarones continue to draw the most attention, their Cru production has become a smashing success with the online community. Today’s wine, the ‘Palazzo Della Torre’ is their very best value, and has become a benchmark for all Valpolicella wines.

Intense nose with hints of coffee and black chocolate to the raspberry jam and dark cherries. Nicely dry and bitter with dark-chocolate character that extends to the long, polished finish with silky tannins. Drink or hold.
