Corte Giara is the 'negociant' label of Allegrini - that is, wines produced by Allegrini using grapes bought in from small growers in the hills around Verona rather than the product of their own vineyards - and offers the full skill and attention of the Allegrini wine making team at everyday prices.

Made using the traditional Veronese 'ripasso' technique which involves a secondary fermentation of the wine on the lees (the grape skins etc left over from fermentation) of Corte Giara's Amarone wine.  The result is a powerful but well-balanced red, with intense beery and morello cherry flavours and the balancing hint of bitterness characteristic of the ripasso style.
