Allegrini la Poja Rosso Veronese 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

This is a complex, full-bodied monovarietal with intense ruby red colour and perfume of blackberries and spices. Made from Corvina Veronese grapes grown at the top of the prestigious and ancient La Grola vineyard, in the parcel called La Poja, where it has found its ideal terroir. This wine is absolutely original for the Valpolicella Classico area. It indeed reveals the character of the most important indigenous grape of this region, which traces its legendary origin precisely on this hill. The inspiration behind this monovarietal lies with Giovanni Allegrini and stemmed from his passionate belief in the land on which he lived. It has the potential to age for 18 years. La Poja makes an ideal accompaniment to roast red meats and game. It is excellent with aged cheeses, and a perfect match with dishes made with white or black truffles. Serve at 18 C (64 F) and open the bottle an hour before drinking.

The Allegrini Farm is located in Fumane di Valpolicella. For generations, the Allegrini family has lived in this small but important locality of the Valpolicella Classica, handing down the activity of wine growing and the vinification of grapes from generation to generation. Since the XVI century, the components of the family have been among the protagonists of Valpolicella history. The document attesting to the fact that Allegrino Allegrini succeeded in purchasing the right to exploit several "fountains" or "springs" in Mazzurega, a suburb of Fumane, to facilitate irrigation of his property, is dated 1557. Between 1616 and 1630, as testified to by the acts and transcriptions of the time, the Allegrini family was counted among the families in Fumane who owned the most land, which ensured their pre-eminence in local society. Giovanni Allegrini, who was extremely proud, like his predecessors, to belong to the land of Valpolicella and dedicated his many resources and great energy to it, was the head of the new generation. Giovanni was among the first winegrowers to question local practices, revolutionising consolidated habits and speaking clearly about quality; he succeeded in adding oenological know-how to rigorousness in selecting grapes, thus creating a virtuous circle that produced some of the finest wines of the Valpolicella in the Sixties and Seventies of the last century. After his early death in 1983, his three children inherited the company: Walter, responsible for conducting the winegrowing activity, Franco, an oenologist and Marilisa, responsible for marketing. Within a relatively short period of time, they brought the company to a position of leadership in international winegrowing. Read less
