La Poja - Corvina Veronese I.G.T. - Allegrini
The Valpolicella, one of the most prestigious areas of the Italian wine scene, has been a land dedicated to viticulture since ancient times, as confirmed by the etymology of its name: "val polis cellae" means, in fact, "the valley of the many wineries“. It is located in western Veneto, between Verona and Lake Garda. The nature of the land is predominantly calcareous from a geological point of view.
The Allegrini family has played a leading role in the history of Valpolicella since the 16th century and has passed on the culture of wine-making from generation to generation, and thanks to the knowledge gained through years of experimentation and research, has perfected a style of Amarone able to maintain and enhance the integrity of the fruit.
The vines for the La Poja red wine grow in Allegrini’s La Grola vineyard outside Fumane in the Northern part of the Valpolicella region in a hilly area at an altitude of 320 m. where the climate is generally mild and temperate. The vineyard is a triangular-shaped, limestone-white plot of land surrounded by cypresses and overlooking Lake Garda just a few kilometres away. Only perfectly ripe Corvina is used to produce a deep and highly sophisticated wine, where fruit, spices and balsamic notes blend perfectly. Longevity – more than 20 years.
