ALLEGRINI LA POJA 2001

Regular price $129.99

An exceptional vintage marked by a rather dry winter and a warm, sunny spring that brought about early flowering. The timely rains that occurred during the greatest period of drought-induced stress restored the vines' equilibrium. The harvest took place some ten days earlier than usual. The sparse bunches, with their thick, crunchy skin and elevated sugar content, fostered the production of well-structured, elegant and balanced wines. The prospects for ageing are excellent. On the top of the hill called La Grola lies a plateau of less than 3 hectares dazzling white in colour, due to its calcareous top soil, and planted exclusively with Corvina since the late 1970s. The premium quality viticultural techniques yield grapes with great personality and maturity. After over 4 years of ageing, the wine is still extraordinarily fresh and crisp with a full spectrum of aromas ranging from fruit to spices and officinal herbs. Full bodied and luscious, with a long, lingering finish. The inspiration behind this monovarietal lies with Giovanni Allegrini and stemmed from his passionate belief in the land on which he lived.
