2017 Allegrini Corvina Veronese La Poja
Allegrini's top wines are offered for the first time via the Place de Bordeaux with these vintages, including this 95 points 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 that this wine would achieve. The superior quality of the viticulture and the perfect microclimate on this approximately 3 hectare plateau, 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 is aged for 20 months in new Allier barrels and then 8 months in large Slavonian oak barrels for maturation 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 roasted tobacco, dark spices and licorice. It enchants the palate with its extraordinary balance, long-lasting persistence and soft, silky tannins. Only perfectly ripe Corvina grapes are used in this deep and refined wine where fruit, spices 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.
