"The 2013 Corvina Veronese La Poja gives us a clear picture of the potential of the Corvina grape when fermented as a single-variety wine. Corvina is an important component of the traditional blend that makes up Amarone, and over recent years, we have seen increased focus on this late-ripening grape with naturally thick skins that are ideal for air drying. The grape offers high acidity with sour cherry aromas backed by lighter structure and tannins. This wine sees 20 months of aging in new Allier oak barrique, and much of the fiber and the texture of the wine is enhanced as a result. The alcohol content is well integrated at 14.5%. Morello cherry aromas are backed by savory spice, toast and camphor ash. In terms of mouthfeel, the wine is broad and thick. Some 15,000 bottles were produced. Drink: 2019-2030. 93 points

Allegrini recently added to its portfolio 40 hectares of vines in the Lugana appellation. Vines were planted in 2018, and this new property will go online with the other ten hectares of vines acquired in the Desenzano area three years ago. Franco and Marilisa Allegrini say that the new acquisitions have the potential of producing 400,000 bottles of white wine. The idea is to create an important cellar-worthy white to add to their portfolio of mostly red wines in the Veneto."
