Allegrini La Poja 2010

£49.99

TASTING NOTE

A full bodied, intense and elegant wine. Dark ruby red in colour, it has a wide, embracing bouquet with notes of wild berries, juniper, tobacco and coffee essence. The high plant density and resulting low yields give this wine its unique concentration. Suitable for ageing up to 10-12 years.

La Grola was bought by Allegrini in 1979. It is situated 310m above sea level. The 30 hectare vineyard has a south-easterly aspect, well-drained calcareous and clay soils and vines planted from 1979-1998. The vines are double Guyot trained at a density of 4,240 vines per hectare and have an average age of 25 year.

The grapes were harvested in the second half of September followed by de-stemming and crushing. Fermentation took place at temperatures between 20-28°C. Maceration lasted for 15 days during which pumping over took place daily. Malolactic fermentation took place naturally in October. The wine was then racked into oak where it matured for 16 months before being blended and spending a further two months in tank before bottling. The wine was then matured in bottle for ten months before release.
