Winemaker comments

A rapid vine growth assured sufficient foliage to favour the flowering, which started in the last week of May. Little rainfall in June and July granted a regular fruit-setting in all grape varieties. Some rain in August (about 60 mm and no hail) fostered an excellent veraison. The grapes were harvested on sunny days characterized by a considerable difference between day and night temperatures (25/8C). These weather conditions enabled us to harvest perfectly healthy grapes with high sugar content and at the ideal level of phenolic maturation. Climatic conditions have continued to be good during the winter, with sunny, clear days. Temperatures above the average have caused a more consistent loss of weight for the grapes stored for drying. We expect an excellent vintage. 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 lived.
