ABOUT THE WINE


The Allegrini family has played a leading role in the history of Fumane and Valpolicella Classica since the sixteenth century and has handed down the culture of the vine and wine ever since. The corporate legacy of Giovanni Allegrini, the driving force behind the rebirth of the Valpolicella area, passed into the hands of the new generations: his son and daughter, Franco and Marilisa, together with his niece Silvia, the daughter of his late son, Walter. The Allegrini family has played a leading role in the history of Fumane and Valpolicella Classica since the 16th century and has handed down the culture of the vine and wine ever since.
This wine is the embodiment of the innovative spirit of Allegrini and the proof of how Valpolicella’s most suitable soils and quality viticulture can produce great red wines, even without the aid of traditional techniques such as appassimento and ripasso. The singular, inimitable geoclimatic and pedoclimatic conditions on the La Grola vineyard and the meticulous cultivation of the grapes give rise to an intense, elegant wine with a distinctive personality, particularly appreciated for the finesse of its aromas.
As a tribute to the unique features of La Grola, Allegrini came up with the idea of creating a gallery of artists’ labels. The series began with the 2010. While vintage 2016 Allegrini turn to the great Japanese artist: Hiroyuki Masuyama. Via a highly-innovative process, the Limited Edition of La Grola is the fascinating synthesis of 'overlapping images' of one of Valpolicella Classica’s iconic vineyards.


TASTING NOTE:


A deep ruby red wine with great character and personality. The scent is broad and enveloping, with hints of blackcurrant, spicy notes of juniper and black pepper, combined with hints of tobacco and coffee. It is fresh and intense on the palate, with superb aromatic persistence.


FOOD PAIRING:


La Grola is excellent paired with red meat dishes, whether roasted or with dark sauces, and especially lamb and kid. It is also delicious with stewed or grilled mushrooms and with mild, aged cheeses.
