Allegrini La Grola 2010

Allegrini La Grola 750ml 2010       
Sku: 1884325

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

This blend of 70% Corvina Veronese, 15% Rondinella, 10% Syrah and 5% Sangiovese is a full-bodied, intense and elegant red wine. It is made from grapes from one of the most noble and prestigious vineyards in the Valpolicella Classico region, the Podere La Grola. The vineyard is 1,000 feet above sea level and its soil is chalky and stony. This unique red has sacrificed its DOC status by replacing Molinara in the blend with Syrah. Aged 16 months in French oak, it then rests almost one year in the bottle. Deep ruby red in color, it has a wide and embracing bouquet with scents of forest fruits, juniper, tobacco and coffee essences.

Tasting notes
A full bodied, intense and elegant red wine.

 Wine Advocate 91 points (Oct 2013)
The 2010 La Grola is 80% Corvina and Corvinone, 10% Oseleta and 10% Syrah, with a large emphasis on the Syrah. You really feel the width and the softness of the Rhone Valley variety backed by loads of black fruit and dried currant. Embellishing contours of dark spice, leather and moist chewing tobacco bring up the rear. After an hour or two in the glass, the wine begins to show territory-driven notes of dried apple and apricot. Drink 2014-2022.
 Wine Enthusiast 89 points (Nov 2013)
Made from a blend of Corvina, Syrah and Oseleta, this savory wine is made by one of Amarone’s leading producers. It offers red currant, bell pepper and black pepper flavors. It’s tightly wound but fresh, and would pair nicely with grilled portobello mushrooms.
