The top wines of Allegrini are offered for the first time through the Place de Bordeaux with these vintages, including this 95 point 2017 La Poja. When Giovanni Allegrini decided in 1979 to plant only Corvina grapes at the top of La Grola, motivated by a great passion for his beloved Valpolicella, he had no idea of the extraordinary success this wine would achieve. the perfect microclimate on this plateau of about 3 hectares, whose white limestone surface sparkles in the sun, yields the best grapes that the Valpolicella can produce, to make this extraordinary and iconic Allegrini cru. The Corvina ages for 20 months in new Allier barrels and then 8 months in large Slavonian oak barrels to mature and then another 10 months in the bottle.

The Allegrini Corvina Veronese La Poja is an elegant, refined wine with a noble profile and great aromatic expression. The enveloping and intense scent rises vertically to reveal ripe but still fresh fruit, followed by notes of toasted tobacco, dark spices and licorice. It captivates the palate with its extraordinary balance, long persistence and soft, silky tannins. Only perfectly ripe Corvina grapes are used in this deep and refined wine where fruit, spice and balsamic notes blend perfectly. On the palate, the wine reveals texture and lightness, warmth and dynamism, richness and simplicity, as only truly great wines can express.
