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.
