Made from grapes grown on clay/limestone hillsides, vinified traditionally in temperature controlled stainless tanks at
The terroir in the vineyards is characterised by the ‘Galets’ or large pebbles that are remnants of Alpine glaciers that have been smoothed over millennia by the Rhône. These pebbles absorb and store the heat from the sun during the day and release it at night, encouraging the vines to
The Central Valley vitivinicultural zone extends from the Maipo Valley in the north to the Maule Valley in the south. The entire zone has good drainage, high fertility, and tremendous agricultural aptitude, especially for red grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, and others. The Mediterranean climate has warm summers
The Colchagua Valley extends from San Fernando in the north to Chimbarongo in the south. The climate is Mediterranean, and the area receives winds from the south and morning fog. Springs are frost-free, and summers are very warm, which encourages proper ripening. Summers are hot but with cool night temperatures.
The Rapel Valley lies with the Pacific Ocean to the West, to the east the Andes Mountains, and to the south the province of Colchagua. The climatic characteristics of this valley include frost-free springs and warm summers that allow the grapes to ripen well. Riverbed associated soils, deep alluvial clay
The Rapel Valley lies with the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Andes Mountains to the east, and the province of Curicó to the south. This area is particularly well suited for growing Carmenère, Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a transversal valley of Chile’s central zone with unique climatic
Casablanca Valley is hugely influenced by its proximity to the cool breezes which blow in of the chilly Pacific Ocean. The vineyard soils are alluvial in origin, with sandy textures, high permeability, whose shallow depth restricts yield. These cooler temperatures and poor soils, in consequence, give great character in both
1989 saw the official recognition of Arneis di Roero as a DOC wine. The grapes for Alasia Roero Arneis are sourced from vineyards on the Langhe hills in the Piemonte region. The vineyards have a south westerly aspect and are situated at altitudes between 200m and 300m above sea level.
The 100% Monastrell grapes are sourced from bush vines cultivated in the north-east of the Jumilla region, on sandy, chalky soil at around 700m altitude. After hand-harvesting the grapes undergo fermentation in stainless steel, then maturation in French and American oak for around 4 months.
Palazzo della Torre covers 26 hectares of east-facing vineyard planted between 1962 and 2013, situated 240 metres above sea level. Allegrini purchased this vineyard in 1978. Soils are cretaceous and calcareous, with Pergola Trentina trained vines planted at 3,000 vines per hectare.Franco Allegrini used the modern version of the traditional
The grapes are we destemmed, crushed and left for two weeks on skin, before letting the juice sit back and enjoy 24 months in barriques – one third new oak and the rest seasoned. The result is classic, approachable and expressive Cabernet Sauvignon. Just like the icons that came before
The vineyards are situated in the hills outside Verona in the Valpantena Valley. Cool currents blow down the valley from the foothills of the Dolomites, which helps to moderate the climate, enabling the grapes to ripen slowly. This helps the grapes to retain their aromatic compounds and acidity. The soil
