A full-bodied wine, intense and elegant. Deep ruby red in colour, it has a wide and embracing bouquet with scents of wild berries and juniper, tobacco and coffee essences. Made from Corvina Veronese, Rondinella, Syrah and Sangiovese grapes grown in La Grola, one of the most prestigious vineyards in the Valpolicella Classico area in terms both of history and position. The high plant density and the resulting low yield work together to give this wine its unique concentration. It can age for 10 - 12 years.

"The 2008 La Grola, a single-vineyard blend of 80% Corvina and 20% Syrah, opens with super-ripe, heady aromatics that lead to exuberant fruit. The wine loses some persistence as the raciness of the fruit tapers off just a touch on the finish. That is admittedly a pretty small critique for a wine that delivers considerable pleasure for the money. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016"
