Winemaker Notes

Deep ruby red in color, La Grola has a wide and embracing bouquet with scents of wild berries, juniper, tobacco and coffee essence. Full-bodied and intense while maintaining its elegance, this wine is made from Corvina Veronese, and Oseleta grapes grown on the terraced sides of “La Grola” hill, one of the most prestigious sites in the Valpolicella Classico area in terms both of history and position. The high plant density and the resulting low yield work to give this wine its unique concentration. Aging potential is 12-15 years.

Blend: 91% Corvina, 10% Oseleta

James Suckling
A red with lots of tannin, mint and berry character. Fresh herbs. Full body, firm tannins and a fruity finish. This is very structured for La Grola. Try in 2016.

Do you think that elegance in wine means thin? Then you need to try the 2012 Allegrini La Grola from the Veneto region of Italy! Made from the strongly fruited Corvina and a little bit of the obscure Oseleta for backbone and firmness, this wine shows excellent richness without blowing away the palate. Pair this with a cioppino and learn the real magic of matching food and wine. Deep ruby in color; fine mix of earth, sage and red fruit in the nose, shows excellent vibrancy; medium bodied, smooth and rather layered on the palate; dryish, medium acidity, very good balance; bright and fruity in the flavors, pleasing red fruits abound; fresh and alive in the aftertaste.

Allegrini Winery Video

Allegrini is the Veneto’s most acclaimed winery, and their Amarone is the gold standard. The Allegrini family has been handing down grapegrowing and winemaking traditions over six generations, playing a major role in the Valpolicella Classico area since the 16th century.

Giovanni Allegrini is the patriarch of the modern estate and has worked hard to develop and perfect major innovations in the art of wine, particularly when it comes to Amarone. He was among the first in questioning local viticultural techniques, revolutionizing accepted practices, and speaking clearly about quality. He was able to combine the science of enology with strict grape selection, and between 1960 and 1970, made some of the Valpolicella's best wines.

The estate is based in Fumane di Valpolicella, just north of Verona in northeastern Italy. 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 riverbeds which remain dry except during spring thaws or autumn rains.

With 247 acres of vineyards in the Valpolicella Classico, the Allegrinis nurture a collection of remarkable sites, each with its own personality, soil, and microclimate. Together, they speak to the rich history and extraordinary quality of Valpolicella. All seven vineyards, ranging from the steep hillsides of La Grola to the perfect plateau of La Poja, offer unique, special terroir to express the full range of what is possible in one of Italy’s most prestigious and storied winemaking regions. The family has been a leader in a marrying traditional winegrowing styles with vineyard innovation, introducing modern trellis techniques, site, and varietal selection through meticulous evaluation.

Allegrini's winemaking philosophy is largely based on the concept of "cru" production: a single vineyard dedicated to the production of local varieties destined to become a single wine. These crus have been a success worldwide: The Palazzo della Torre, La Grola and La Poja have set the highest benchmarks for Valpolicella's wines.
