Wine tasting notes

Bright straw yellow in the glass with light and delicate aromas showing lovely Pinot Grigio character. Elegant floral notes are complemented by richer hints of Golden Delicious apples. This wine with its dry, racy palate and good depth and definition is a sure-fire winner.

Winery information

Corte Giara

Corte Giara is the negociant label of Allegrini. The wines are made by Allegrini from fruit bought in from outside their own vineyards. Since 2008, they have been renting an estate called Tenuta di Naiano, which is situated east of Verona close to Lake Garda. This gives them the same control over the vineyards as they have with the Allegrini wines, and ensures that most of their Pinot Grigio and Bardolino now comes from vineyards they control.


As a result, the wines have a similar stamp of quality to the Allegrini wines, something that sets them aside from most of the Veronese wines produced at this level. Franco Allegrini is of course the master of Valpolicella, so it is not surprising that the Cortegiara Ripasso and Amarone are so good.

Vinification notes

The grapes were whole bunch pressed and fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 14-15°C for 8-10 days. Partial malolactic fermentation was allowed to take place in September. The wine remained in tank until bottling.
