Food Pairings for Allegrini Corvina Blend Veronese IGT la Poja
The Allegrini family estate encompasses 70 hectares of vineyard situated in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico area. The Allegrini family have been growing grapes in Valpolicella for several generations, though the estate in its current form was founded by Giovanni Allegrini. When he died in 1983, the estate passed to his three children who ran it together until Walter’s death in July 2003. Franco now looks after the vineyards and is the winemaker, and Marilisa is director of marketing. Located at the top of Podere La Grola, Sant’Ambrogio di Valpolicella, the vineyard comprises 2.65 ha planted in 1979 at 310 metres above sea level, with south-east exposure. The soil is welldrained calcareous (78.5% chalk) and stony. Soils are marginally alkaline and combine with the active limestone content to reduce the vines’ vigour. Double Guyot trained vines with about 4200 vines per hectare, with the average age of 21 years. The yield is 42 Hl/Ha. This 100% Corvina Veronese is intense ruby red in colour. This wine has complex aromas of blackberries and spices on the nose. Full-bodied, intense and elegant on the palate with fruit, tannin and acidity all perfectly integrated, and the great length characteristic of a really high quality wine.
