Winemaker comments

This vintage is characterised by rather low average temperatures and normal precipitation. Thinning of the grapes proved to be fundamental, in as much as production tended to be high. The ripening, albeit slightly delayed with respect to the average in recent years, was characterised by a fine equilibrium between sugars and polyphenols. 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. It has the potential to age for 18 years
