Valpolicella, one of most prestigious areas of the Italian wine scene, it has been a land dedicated to viticulture since ancient times, as confirmed by the etymology of its own name: “val polis cellae” means in fact, “the valley of the many wineries”. It is located in western Veneto, between Verona and Lake Garda, bounded, to the north, by the Lessini Mountains. The Allegrini family has been the protagonist of the history of Fiumane and Valpolicella since the 16th century and, since then, has handed down the culture of vines and wine. Notarial documents attest that it played a prominent role in the local community and count it among the families of the most important landowners, which have always been linked to agricultural work and to the enhancement of the peasant tradition. When in 1979 Giovanni Allegrini, driven by a brilliant intuition and a deep knowledge of his beloved Valpolicella, decided to plant only Corvina Veronese grapes on the top of La Grola, perhaps he did not imagine the extraordinary success that this wine would achieve.
