Vineyard Notes
La Grola was bought by Allegrini in 1979. It is situated 310 metres above sea level. The 30 hectare vineyard has a south-easterly aspect, well-drained calcareous and clay soils and vines planted from 1979-1998.
Production Notes
The vines are double Guyot trained at a density of 4,240 vines per hectare and have an average age of 25 years.
Winemaker Notes
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.
Food Pairing Notes
Steaks, stews and ribs but also pork, veal, and poultry dishes. The big flavor won't overshadow cheeses, pasta dishes or even fish. Be daring, this is the wine that will give you the courage and the power to do so!
