1997 Allegrini "La Poja" Veronese (1.5L)

SKU #1349264 96 points James Suckling

 Incredible nose of ripe fruits with hints of raisins and treacle tart. Full-bodied with velvety tannins that are polished and beautiful. Tangy with a rich finish. This is always a great bottle. It never seems to change. Drink now.  (4/2015)

96 points Wine Spectator

 Very dark color. Powerful aromas of blackberry, currant and dark chocolate. Spices too. Full-bodied, with big juicy tannins and a long, long finish. This is a blockbuster still. Stylish and supercharged. Give it a little more time.--1997 Italian blind retrospective. Best after 2011. (JS, Web-2007)

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world.
