Allegrini La Grola 2016
The La Grola vineyard represents, in conjunction with an ancient legend that traces birth of the Corvina varietal precisely to this magnificent hill, the ideal location for 'wine-making', and has always stood as a symbol of the Valpolicella Classico zone.
La Grola is the extraordinary result of the meeting of two great personalities: the hill of La Grola and the Valpolicella's autochthonous grapes. The excellent exposure of the vineyards, which enjoy the sun's warm rays and the cool breezes that come from nearby Lake Garda, allows the grapes to produce their very best. Careful, craftsman-like ageing in the cellar yields a red wine with great elegance, harmony and finesse that can evolve positively for over a decade.
La Grola is excellent paired with red meat dishes, whether roasted or with dark sauces, and especially lamb and kid. It is also delicious with stewed or grilled mushrooms and with mild, aged cheeses.
