The name of the Company founder, Giovanni Allegrini, has been given to this red dessert wine made, using entirely new techniques, from selected and dried Valpolicella grapes.
Changes have been introduced in the maturing and ageing of the wine after fermentation. The wine is transferred into small French oak barriques where, after completion of the fermentation, it is settled and matured for a total period of 14 months. During this period the aromatic richness of the wine is greatly enhanced and a high degree of complexity and elegance achieved.
This is wine to meditate over. It is an excellent accompaniment to certain end of meal foods, such as cheeses, in particular mild gorgonzola.
Traditionally this wine is drunk with dry sweets, such as shortbread, cantucci, "sbrisolona" (a traditional local sweet), but is also ideal with the whole range of tropical fruits. Serve at 14°C and open the bottle an hour before drinking.
