Allegrini La Poja (Monovitigno Corvina Veronese)
In 1979 when Giovanni Allegrini, inspired by brillant intuition and a profund understanding of his beloved Valpolicella, decided to plant only the Corvina Veronese varietal on the summit of the La Grola hill, perhaps even him could not have imagined the extraordinary future success of this wine.
On the top of the hill called La Grola lies a plateau of less than 3 hectares dazzling white in colour, due to its calcareous top soil, and planted exclusively with Corvina since the late 1970s. The premium quality viticultural techniques yield grapes with great personality and maturity. After over 4 years of ageing, the wine is still extraordinarily fresh and crisp with a full spectrum of aromas ranging from fruit to spices and officinal herbs.
La Poja makes an ideal accompaniment to roasted red meats and game. It is excellent with aged cheeses, and a perfect match with white or black truffles. Serve at 18°C (64°F) and open the bottle one hour before consumption. Has the potential to age for 18 years.
