Wine Style Guide
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.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
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
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%.
Opaque ruby-red in color with arresting aromas of wild berries, juniper, tobacco and coffee. On the palate, the wine is rich, elegant and full-bodied. Pairs perfectly with roast steak, lamb or veal.
"A subtle red, tightly knit right now, with fine-grained tannins and crushed black currant, cassis, smoky stone and spice box flavors. The fresh finish is lightly chewy. Corvina Veronese, Rondinella, Syrah and Sangiovese. Best from 2013 through 2020. 17,600 cases made."
"This vintage of La Grola opens with impressive intensity and richness of texture that spreads generously over the palate. This food-friendly Italian red makes a lasting impression thanks to its beautiful aromas of black fruit, spice, toasted nut, cola and tobacco."

Valpolicella, or valley of many cellars is an area crossed from north to south by a series of hills, which in succession form three parallel valleys. These valleys are crossed by steep-sided, narrow river beds which remain dry except during spring thaws or autumn rains.
