It’s a noble wine deeply tied with territory, that guards the roots of fine grape.
The allegracuore is a noble wine deeply linked to the territory, and is made with vines cultivated with saplings from two grape varieties: Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio. Full-bodied wine, velvety and pleasant to drink. The characteristic is its perpetual aging, ancestor of Marsala, in oak barrels. Every year 10% of wine is taken from the barrels and passed into the bottles, then the missing 10% is replaced with the wine of the current year.
The cheerful heart was consecrated by Pope John Paul II.
