    Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate:  "The 2010 La Poja is the latest bottling of 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."  Dec 2014

    Winery:  "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 single varietal lies with Giovanni Allegrini and stemmed from his passionate belief in the land on which he lived.

    Food Pairings:  La Poja makes an ideal accompaniment to roasted red meats and game. It is excellent with aged cheeses, and a perfect match with white or black truffles. Serve at 18°C (64°F) and open the bottle one hour before consumption.  Has the potential to age for 18 years."
