Allegini always makes some of the softest, ripest, most feminine wines of Veneto. So classicists will find too much...

The composition of this wine changes from one year to the next and thus it is classified with an IGT label This one is a blend of 80% Corvina and 20% Syrah. I have enjoyed La Grola so many times that I have lost count and it is always incredible. Expect a velvety smooth, medium to full bodied wine rich with cherry, chocolate, and spice. The 2006 vintage in Veneto was exceptional and therefore the wines are quite structured and complex. Let this one sit on its side until 2012+ and then enjoy with rich meal and good friends.
