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.

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.
