Vintage characteristics
2016 was characterized by an overall favorable climate trend, despite a spring marked by rainfall above the seasonal average. The heavy rains of the month of May imposed a prompt and
rigorous work to protect the vine, which made it possible to preserve its health status.
From the second half of June the good weather was imposed for all the summer months, with temperatures
that did not exceed 35 ° C.
The significant temperature changes recorded especially at the time of veraison, combined with the substantial water reserve created in the spring months, led to an
increase in the
sugar level, favored the maintenance of acidity and facilitated the development of the aromatic profile of each variety. Finally, a "slow" harvest, which took place in ideal
atmospheric conditions, allowed the grapes to gradually complete the ripening phase.
The thousandth 2016 promises to be one of the best vintages ever, capable of standing out for its great
balance and elegance

Allegrini

The Allegrini company can be considered the result of the intelligence and industriousness of Giovanni Allegrini, a simple and spontaneous man who created a solid, efficient and innovative agricultural company. He began his activity at a very young age and perfected the art of winemaking by demonstrating great skills and an engaging passion. With an evocative image, he was called "the barrel spider": in his cellar, in fact, he proudly tasted the wines and, listening to judgments and impressions, he jumped like a spider from one of the other precious barrels. Giovanni's lifestyle, history and culture are still the key to understanding the philosophy and reasons for the success of the Allegrini Company. After his death in 1983, his sons took care of the company.
