The Allegrini family estate covers 100 hectares of vineyards in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico area. The family has been growing grapes here for six generations, but Giovanni Allegrini founded the estate in its current form. When he passed away in 1983, it passed to his three children, who ran it together until Walter's death in July 2003. Franco now looks after the vineyards and is the winemaker, and Marilisa is the marketing director.

You can see Lake Garda from the top of La Grola vineyard which Giovanni Allegrini bought in 1979 to create Valpolicella’s first single vineyard Corvina.

The 30-hectare vineyard has a south-easterly aspect, well-drained calcareous and clay soils, and vines were planted between 1979 and 1998. The vines are double Guyot trained at a density ranging from 4,240 to 6,500 vines per hectare. The high plant density and resulting low yields give this wine its unique concentration.

La Grola is a full bodied, intense, and elegant wine. Dark ruby red in colour, it has aromas of wild berries, black pepper, with subtle notes of forest floor and tobacco.

‘La Grola’, sleek and beguiling, sets the standard by which all other wines from Valpolicella are judged.
