Robert Parker: The 2006 Corvina La Poja is another racy, exuberant wine loaded with red cherries, spices and grilled herbs. La Poja impresses for its fabulous length and a silky, elegant finish laced with flowers and sweet red fruits. This is an undeniably sexy wine from Allegrini. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.

La Poja is a tract of land that is almost a small plateau (327 m a.s.l.), which spread out just above La Grola. It is a vineyard of about 2.5 hectares, which was planted in 1979 with the idea of experimenting with the potential of Corvina grapes, which, in the case of La Poja's wine, are vinified in purity.
The Guyot planting was programmed with the precise intention of producing an absolutely original wine for the Valpolicella Classica area, capable of valorising its most representative vineyard. The intuition of growing single grape varieties belongs entirely to Giovanni Allegrini, who developed the idea through passionate dialogue with his land. La Poja is a vineyard that enjoys a very particular microclimate: it has fine exposure throughout the day, constant ventilation and a terrain that is almost exclusively calcareous, a true exception in the geological panorama of the Valpolicella.
Climate conditions are the same as La Grola, but there is a significant difference in soil type.
Wine maker 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.
