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.

A blend of 90% Corvina with 10% Oseleta, the Allegrini 2018 La Grola shows medium dark intensity with lots of smoky overlays, including tobacco and campfire ash. At the core of the wine is a healthy dose of ripe blackberry and plum. The wine offers the power and textural fiber to pair with a classic steak in creamy mushroom sauce.

The dark and brooding 2018 La Grola opens with underbrush and earth tones give way to dusty rose and autumnal spices. This is deeply textural and elegant in feel, with masses of red and black berries complemented by saline-minerals and a brisk acid core. There's a peppery flourish that lasts through the finale, resonating under an air of violet and lavender, as nuances of dark chocolate linger long. This is a stunning rendition of La Grola, which is a blend of 90% Corvina Veronese and 10% Oseleta.
