Allegrini La Grola 2013
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
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, the wine is made from Corvina Veronese and Oseleta grapes grown on terraces. The high plant density and the resulting low yields add to the wine’s unique concentration. Aging potential is 12-15 years.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 La Grola represents a blend of 90% Corvina Veronese and 10% Oseleta. Past editions saw a small part Syrah but this is no longer the case. The wine's appearance is rich and deeply saturated with an inky black color. The bouquet revs up slowly with black prune and plum followed by spice, tar, road paving and cured meat. The effect is extra thick and dense. In the mouth, La Grola displays syrupy richness with both savory and slightly sweet mahogany spice. The wine rests in once-used barrique for 16 months.
Wine SpectatorWell-spiced and herbaceous, this well-meshed red frames flavors of ripe currant, espresso, dried fig and smoke with fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Harmonious. Drink now through 2021. 600 cases imported.
