Allegrini’s most exclusive and prestigious wine comes from this small parcel of land. Planted in 1979 with the same innovations introduced on La Grola, it was immediately identified by Giovanni Allegrini as the ideal place for the production of a great 100% Corvina.

The differences

La Poja is a perfectly flat plateau overlooking the hill of La Grola. Of Cretaceous origin, it has a significant calcareous component and is very rich in gravelly matter. It has a perfectly white surface which, in reflecting sunlight, ensures that the grapes reach ideal sugar concentrations and phenolic ripeness.
