Winemaker's Notes:

"The La Grola vineyard represents, in conjunction with an ancient legend that traces birth of the Corvina varietal precisely to this magnificent hill, the ideal location for 'wine-making', and has always stood as a symbol of the Valpolicella Classico zone."

Tasting notes: 

a full-bodied, intense and elegant wine. Deep ruby red in colour, it has a wide and embracing bouquet with scents of wild berries and juniper, tobacco and coffee essence. Made from Corvina Veronese, Oseleta and Syrah grapes grown in La Grola, one of the most prestigious vineyards in the Valpolicella Classico area in terms both of history and position.
 
Serving suggestions: 
it makes a perfect pairing with red meat, especially lamb. It is also delicious with stewed or grilled mushrooms and with mild, aged cheeses. Serve at 16-18°C (61-64°F) and open the bottle one hour prior to consumption. This wine can age for 10-12 years.
