Winemakers Note

Allegrini was founded in Fumane in the heart of Valpolicella Classica, a land of ancient, noble traditions. While historical records trace the Allegrini Family back to the 16th century, it has been producing wine for generations and is at the forefront of the development and promotion of the Valpolicella in support of the culture and identity of its own territory. Starting in the 1960s, the Company underwent a profound transformation via Giovanni Allegrini, recognized as one of the major architects of the rebirth of the Valpolicella. The Company’s legacy then passed into the hands of his children Walter, Marilisa and Franco, who have been able to take up, develop and communicate the great insights of their father with impassioned enthusiasm, making the name of Allegrini and of the Valpolicella renowned around the world. Fieramonte's 8ha-vineyard is located on a special part of the upper Valpolicella Classica and benefits from a ideal exposure to the east. The Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Oseleta grapes planted there will then be carufully selected so that the best bunches will produce the Amarone Fieramonte Riserva.

The ripening phase required two emergency irrigations in the upper hillside vineyards and also benefitted from the timely rainfall of 20th August, which helped maintain the physiological balance of the vines, resulting in the complete aromatic and phenolic ripening of the grapes. Tasting notes The lengthy ageing process in the cellar confers depth and layers to the aromas, with the dark fruit initially forward and then yielding more and more space to spicy notes, coffee and medicinal herbs. The impact on the palate is decisive and powerful, with the mouthfeel gaining grip and finesse thanks to the supple acidic impetus. 100pts by Decanter - "This is amazingly good with excellent freshness throughout"
