Winemaker comments

2005 was a vintage characterized by a noticeable climatic change. Spring began with rather low temperatures, which slightly delayed the phenological development of the vines. A heat wave in May and June enabled them to make up for lost time. July, August and September were characterized by little sunshine, substantial rainfall and low temperatures. August, in particular, saw some hail storms, fortunately they did not affect our vineyards. Rainfall in the first half of September and below average temperatures made it necessary to carefully select the grapes that would be kept aside for drying. Production quality was very good thanks to the severe control of quantity. 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 live
