This wine is ruby red in colour with purple highlights. On the nose, there are characteristic hints of cherries and pepper, followed by subtle herbal nuances. It is dry and well-balanced with the traditional fresh acidity balancing the soft fruitiness to give a supple yet feisty wine.
Corte Giara is the negociant label of Allegrini. The wines are made by Allegrini from fruit brought in from outside their own vineyards. They have a similar stamp of quality that sets them apart from most of the Veronese wines produced at this level.
Vineyards are located on the hillsides of the Valpolicella production area at an altitude between 180-250 metres above sea level and face south-east. Soils here are clay and chalk. The vines are 30 years old on average, with a plant density of about 3,000 vines per hectare.
The grapes were hand harvested, destemmed and then softly crushed. Fermentation took place in temperature-controlled, stainless-steel tanks between 25-31°C over a period of nine days with daily pump overs. Malolactic fermentation occurred naturally in December. The wine was aged for three months in temperature-controlled, stainless-steel tanks before being bottled.
