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. 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.
Elegant overall, this offers layers of ripe black cherry and black currant fruit, with graphite- and smoke-tinged mineral, espresso and vanilla notes. The fine-grained tannins provide some muscle. Corvina Veronese, Rondinella, Syrah and Sangiovese. Drink now through 2020.
