Allegrini La Grola 2019
|Italy, Veneto, Veronese
This is a lot of wine in the best possible way. Luscious aromas of blackberries, blueberry compote and baking spices define the wine (currently). The palate is rich, full in body, with savory spices, black plums and vanilla. The tannins are taut and elegant with a mouthwatering finish. This bold wine is fun today but will be great over the next 10 years Drink from 2023-2032.
The 2019 La Grola keeps me returning to the glass to take in its darkly alluring blend of steeped cherries and plums complemented by sage and clove nuances. This is silky-smooth and potent, with a wave of ripe red fruits and spices that drench the palate in youthful concentration. Grippy tannins are left to linger as tart wild berries and a subtle hint of citrus add contrast. La Grola is primarily Corvina with a 10% dollop of Oseleta and doesn't go through any appassimento.
