    • "La Grola" Rosso Veronese IGT 2016<br>Artist Label "Hiroyuki Masuyama"

      “La Grola” Rosso Veronese IGT 2016 · Artist Label “Hiroyuki Masuyama“

      La Grola is the historic vineyard that gave its name to Corvina, the autochthonous grape of Valpolicella, which is probably its origin. The replanting of the vineyard by Giovanni Allegrini sparked an agronomic revolution and laid the foundations for the success of this wine-growing area, which today is home to great red wines from north-eastern Italy.

      So it is not surprising that La Grola receives a special honour from its magnificent location. Since 2010, Allegrini has been collaborating with internationally renowned artists, publishing year after year a unique, limited artist edition. The edition opened with a work by Milo Manara, continued in 2011 with a label designed by Arthur Duff and continued in 2012 with a painting by Athos Faccincani. The composition VI by Wassily Kandinsky was selected for La Grola in 2013, and in 2014 the artistic journey went to Brazil and to Nazareno Rodrigues Alves, before returning to Italy with the 2015 edition to Leonardo Ulian.

      The 2016 vintage was interpreted by a great Japanese artist: Hiroyuki Masuyama. In a highly innovative process, La Grola's Limited Edition ennobles the fascinating synthesis of overlapping shots. A total of 288 photographs are incorporated into this work, showing one of the legendary vineyards of Valpolicella from an exciting and completely new perspective. Time and space are the fundamental elements of Hiroyuki Masuyama's overall creativity: everything revolves around these two concepts, which have been formalised differently over the years and have become the hallmark of his work. Masuyama combines and overlaps the result of hundreds of photographs taken of his subject from a fixed angle. The result of this superimposition is another image of the same place.

      We are pleased to be able to offer you some copies of the special edition, which is strictly limited every year!

      Dense, dark ruby red, in the nose very full-bodied and strong with tones of forest and overripe berries. The rich fullness from coffee to black cherries is accompanied by present, pleasant tannins. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Lovely balance, as always, to this super Veronese red with juicy dark fruit and hints of black chocolate. Medium to full body, succulent tannins and a fresh finish." James Suckling

      "Very inky and toasty nose. On the palate the wine is elegant, fresh and poised with classy, well-integrated oak, flavours of plums and cherries and tight tannins, which will soften in time." Decanter

      “La Grola” Rosso Veronese IGT 2013 · Artist Label “Wassily Kandinsky” in Metal Tube

      La Grola is the historic vineyard that gave its name to Corvina, the autochthonous grape of Valpolicella, which is probably its origin. The replanting of the vineyard by Giovanni Allegrini sparked an agronomic revolution and laid the foundations for the success of this wine-growing area, which today is home to great red wines from north-eastern Italy.

Since 2010, Allegrini has been collaborating with internationally renowned artists, publishing year after year a unique, limited artist edition. The edition opened with a work by Milo Manara, continued in 2011 with a label designed by Arthur Duff and continued in 2012 with a painting by Athos Faccincani.

      In contrast to the works of previous years, which were specially made for the icon wine, the 2013 vintage is the first to bear an existing, internationally renowned work. With the kind permission of the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, La Grola bears the "Composition VI" by Wassily Kandinsky in 2013. Kandinsky is one of the great masters of abstract painting. He was an artist of Expressionism and one of the pioneers of abstract art. And here we can clearly see the connection between artist and wine, because both Kandinsky and Allegrini are visionaries in their fields.

      We are pleased to be able to offer you some copies of the special edition, which is strictly limited every year!

      "Well-spiced and herbaceous, this well-meshed red frames flavors of ripe currant, espresso, dried fig and smoke with fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Harmonious." Wine Spectator

      "More cabernet coming out on the nose with dark berries and light chocolate. Full body, lightly chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Shows length and intensity." James Suckling

      "The 2013 La Grola represents a blend of 90% Corvina Veronese and 10% Oseleta. Past editions saw a small part Syrah but this is no longer the case. The wine's appearance is rich and deeply saturated with an inky black color. The bouquet revs up slowly with black prune and plum followed by spice, tar, road paving and cured meat. The effect is extra thick and dense. In the mouth, La Grola displays syrupy richness with both savory and slightly sweet mahogany spice. The wine rests in once-used barrique for 16 months."

      The edition for 2014 was designed by the innovative Brazilian artist Nazareno Rodrigues Alves. His graceful and very detailed naturalistic drawings show the animals that live in the vineyards and are without doubt the best witnesses of the meticulous work of the Allegrini family. The work deals with the rebirth of life and the diverse presence of wildlife, protected by sustainable agriculture.

      For the 2015 vintage, Allegrini collaborated with Italian artist Leonardo Ulian, who, inspired by James Frazer's "The Golden Bough", created the link between the literary work and wine. The work represents impressively how interwoven the narratives are with the emergence of the wine and the vine rows in the vineyard.

      Dense, dark ruby red, in the nose very full-bodied and strong with tones of forest and overripe berries. The rich fullness from coffee to black cherries is accompanied by present, pleasant tannins. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Elegant and harmonious, this medium-bodied red offers fine, creamy tannins and fragrant hints of spice and leather lacing the baked black cherry, date, dried thyme and mineral notes. Long and supple on the finish." Wine Spectator

      "A blend of 90% Corvina Veronese and 10% Oseleta, this alluring red opens with aromas of wild berry, tobacco and a whiff of coffee bean. It's elegant and full bodied, offering ripe plum, black cherry, star anise and ground pepper alongside taut fine-grained tannins." Wine Enthusiast

      "The 2015 La Grola is a terrific wine, both food friendly and accessible. The blend is 90% Corvina with 10% Oseleta, which adds color and richness to the overall wine, thanks to the grape's small and compact berry size. You get terrific value here in a wine that has the aromatic intensity and textural fiber to stand up to barbecued meats or tri-tip. The fact that the wine's tannins are slightly more contained and soft means La Grola would beautifully match those spicy and smoky flavors." Robert Parker

      "Brambleberries, underbrush, bracken, cedar and loads of dark cherries and plums. Full body, fresh acidity and a tangy, medium-long finish. A very well poised red that’s beautiful to drink now, but should improve within a couple of years." James Suckling

    • Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOCG 2015

      Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOCG 2015

      Strong garnet red colour, the bouquet reminds of dried fruits, in addition liquorice and discreet spices are added. The taste is full and velvety with hints of cherry and vanilla. Smooth tannins, a fine salt note and a well-dosed acidity lead this extremely elegant Amarone into a brilliant finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "For a decadent but sleek wine, the ripeness level is spot-on here. It opens with glazed cherries, dried berries, vanilla, eucalyptus, caramel and wet earth, before following through to a dusty palate with tons of dried fruit, supported by fine acidity and a sweet-and-sour character." James Suckling

    About the winemakers
    Allegrini
    Veneto
    Allegrini

    The Allegrini winery, with its headquarters and vineyards in Fumane, and other vineyards in the municipalities of Sant'Ambrogio and San Pietro are among the leading wine producers of Valpolicella Classica. The farm belongs to the family of the same name, which has been rooted in the area since the 16th century. The drops available on the market at reasonable prices are an expression of the history of the Valpolicella Classico area. Marilisa, Franco and Silvia, near Verona, cultivate more than a hundred hectares of their own vineyards in a picturesque setting, with great sensitivity and respect for the local wine-growing traditions. The wines, full of character and ranking at the highest level, are made exclusively from strictly selected grapes full of fragrance and elegance.

    In the course of time, radical innovations in viticulture, but also in the air-drying technique of the grapes and the oenological processes in the barrel cellar were introduced in the old-established company in Veneto. The owners always had the goal in mind to get the best out of the Valpolicella's trusted quality potential. The result of Allegrini's long research activities are soft, sensual and fruity wines at world level, with the famous Amarone at the top.

    Most of the historic vineyards, some of which are still built with dry stone walls, are located in the most representative areas of the Valpolicella valley. One of these is Palazzo della Torre, named after a magnificent Renaissance building acquired by the family. The soils are rich in clay and the microclimate is perfect. The legendary La Grola vineyard in the Mazzurega zone, acquired by father Giovanni, is also of considerable value, with its volcanic origins and ideal climate for growing the red varieties Corvina Veronese and Rondinella. Also the vineyard La Poja belongs to the best sites of the whole Valpolicella area. The Allegrini family has carefully studied the climatic differences and the specific characteristics of each plot of land. It has proved to be right to rehabilitate very old and poorly planted vineyards. However, not all vineyards in the estate use modern espalier planting in the Guyot system. For older sticks the traditional pergola education is maintained.

    The Allegrini family passes on from generation to generation their profound knowledge of viticulture and the production of the finest wines. Fumane is constantly being experimented with and modernised. All important wine critics agree in their opinion: The Azienda Agricola Allegrini ranks among the absolute top of the Italian wine world. In the 2016 edition of the prestigious Italian wine guide Gambero RossoAllegrini was awarded the title 'Winery of the year' was awarded. SUPERIORE.DE

    "This company has contributed a great deal to the international reputation of Amarone, since the high quality of the wines is complemented by reasonable prices and a close-meshed distribution."Gambero Rosso
