If you are looking for an Italian wine brand that has centuries of history, culture and tradition attached to it, look no further than Allegrini Wines. The Allegrini Family’s history can be traced back to as early as the 16th century when the first generation of the family planted vines in the areas of Fumane and Valpolicella in Italy. Today, they are the most reputed and recognised wine families in the Italian countryside.
La Grola was bought by Allegrini in 1979. It is situated 310 metres above sea level. The 30 hectare vineyard has a south-easterly aspect, well-drained calcareous and clay soils and vines planted from 1979-1998. The vines are double Guyot trained at a density of 4,240 vines per hectare and have an average age of 25 years.
Harvesting is performed by hand in the second half of September each year.
After fermentation in steel tanks with periodic daily pumping over, the wine ages in second use French oak barrels for 16 months and in large Slavonian barrels for 2 months, followed by ageing in the bottle for 10 months
