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

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

This single-vineyard blend of 70% Corvina Veronese, 15% Rondinella, 10% Syrah and 5% Sangiovese is a full-bodied, intense and elegant wine. All grapes are harvested from one of the most noble and prestigious vineyards in the Valpolicella Classico area: the La Grola vineyard, with its chalky and clayey soils, is located 1,000 feet above sea level. Aged 16 months in French oak, this wine is matured for almost one year in bottle for extra finesse.

Deep ruby red in color with a wide and embracing bouquet. Scents of wildberries, juniper, tobacco and coffee come through on the nose. This is a full-bodied, intense and elegant wine. It makes a perfect pairing with red meat, especially lamb. Also delicious with mild, aged cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"La Grola is an opulent and luscious blended wine from Verona and this particular expression offers extra aromas of cured beef, leather and earth over a generous base of black fruit and spice. It shows soft, fine tannins that would pair with smoked ham. "
