Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Deep ruby red in color, La Grola offers a wide, embracing bouquet of wild berries, juniper, licorice, tobacco and espresso. Full-bodied yet silky, with juicy tannins, La Grola is the wine of choice for red meat, either roasted or in casseroles, and mellow, aged cheeses.

"The 2005 La Grola is a blend of 70% Corvina Veronese, 15% Rondinella, 10% Syrah and 5% Sangiovese that spends 16 months in French oak barrels. Medium in body, it reveals enticing notes of crushed flowers, raspberries, minerals and sweet spices, with outstanding length and silky-textured tannins that round out the close. It is an absolutely delicious, value-priced red from Allegrini." 90 Points,

Critical Acclaim

"Shows tarry black fruit, with a light raisiny edge. Full-bodied, with silky, fruit-coated tannins and a clean, well-structured finish that shows persistent fruit. There's notes of citrus fruits as well. Nicely done. Best after 2009. 22,000 cases made. "
