With more than six generations of winegrowing tradition, Allegrini is the most-awarded winery in the Veneto and the benchmark for Amarone. The Allegrini family’s innovations in appassimento winemaking have made the estate’s classic Amarone and Valpolicella wines exemplars of excellence, while their emphasis on single vineyard expressions of local grape varieties has drawn renewed interest in the Veneto. Led by CEO Marilisa Allegrini, president of Amarone Families (Famiglie dell’Amarone d’Arte), and winemaker Franco Allegrini, the estate continues to marry tradition with innovation, selling wine in over 60 countries worldwide. Poggio al Tesoro is also part of the Allegrini family; it is their pride and joy in the famed Bolgheri region.
