Allegrini La Grola 2011

This blend of 70% Corvina Veronese, 15% Rondinella, 10% Syrah and 5% Sangiovese is a full-bodied, intense and elegant red wine. It is made from grapes from one of the most noble and prestigious vineyards in the Valpolicella Classico region, the Podere La Grola. The vineyard is 1,000 feet above sea level and its soil is chalky and stony. This unique red has sacrificed its DOC status by replacing Molinara in the blend with Syrah. Aged 16 months in French oak, it then rests almost one year in the bottle. Deep ruby red in color, it has a wide and embracing bouquet with scents of forest fruits, juniper, tobacco and coffee essences. [+]
