Polished elegance and superior quality define that which is the Allegrini family's oenological reign. As pioneers Veneto wine making since the 16th century, the family's advancement in research and innovation coupled with a fierce commitment to the indigenous grapes of the region has resulted in year after year of spectacular wines whose praises are only superseded by their taste. The family's estate in Veneto and join-ventures with Leonardo Lo Cascio in Tuscany are woven into this highly customized eight-day experience, carefully tailored to bring the refined flavors of Allegrini in the glass to life.
Your experience begins with exploring and tasting La Serenissima from the five-star Danieli, from the hotel's opened Wine Suite, depths of the doge's palace to the nooks of Venice's cicchetti bars. The following stay in Verona at Allegrini family's luxury apartment, located in the historical center of Verona, includes a private afternoon tour of the city and dinner reservations at the critically acclaimed Antica Bottega del Vino. Frequented by celebrated authors, poets, and artists, this self-proclaimed "Temple of Wine" boasts a world-famous wine cellar and one the most extensive wine lists in Italy.
A visit to Allegrini's acclaimed Palazzo della Torre Estate, dedicated to traditional Veneto grapes such as Corvina, Rondinella, and Mollinaro, reveals how the family implements the age-old appassimento technique while using state-of-the-art technologies to create their award-winning wines. A tasting and lunch follows at the on-site Villa della Torre, a 16th-century jewel of the Italian Renaissance.
Arrival in Tuscany at the wine resort Castello di Casole allows you for relaxing pause before venturing on a two-day experience of Tuscan wine country, beginning with a trip to Montalcino's San Polo Estate and the tasting of its elegant expression of the Sangiovese grape. The grounds are a tribute to the natural beauty of the landscape, and use only environmentally friendly practices in their cultivation, harvesting, and vinification of grapes. The final day begins with a scenic drive from the Castello through an unspoiled Tuscan landscape to the coastal region of Bolgheri, where the tesoro, "treasure" of Bolgheri is evident in the three distinct plots of land at the Poggio al Tesoro Estate with the many excellent expressions of international varieties.
