2010 Allegrini La Poja Veronese IGT


Veneto, Italy

The La Poja is one of the most delicious monovarietal expressions of Corvina you will ever taste, and one of Italy's most unique wines. This is a pure expression of the Corvina Veronese variety, the chief component of Amarone wines made according to the appassimento process. La Poja allows this finicky grape to sing solo with some 20 months in new barrique followed by eight months in the bottle. The results are outstanding with pristine cherry and blackberry followed by spice, leather, and tar. For best results, age this wine another four or five years.
