This luminous cherry coloured Malbec with pink hues offers a delicate bouquet of redcurrant, minty blackberry leaves and tenuous smoky notes.

Aromas of passion fruit, accompanied by gentle white pepper follow.

The palate is light bodied, silky with very delicate tannins, along with mango and plum notes. On the finish, sweet spices and dried herbs linger with a natural acidity.

Across the range and from vintage to vintage, they have superb fruit, balance, intensity, length, elegance, tipicity and, above all, drinkability. Allegrini history Each wine has winemaker Franco Allegrini’s distinct stamp of quality, but every one has its own distinctive character. They are among the elite of the world’s best producers of red wines. The family has been growing grapes in Valpolicella for several generations, and the estate in its current form was founded by… Read more

Robert Parker (RP) : 92 Points (2018)
A blend of 90% Corvina with 10% Oseleta, the Allegrini 2018 La Grola shows medium dark intensity with lots of smoky overlays, including tobacco and campfire ash. At the core of the wine is a healthy dose of ripe blackberry and plum. The wine offers the power and textural fiber to pair with a classic steak in creamy mushroom sauce.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 92 Points (2018)
Made with 90% Corvina and 10% Oseleta, this offers aromas of cassis, baking spice and new leather. The sleek, balanced palate features ripe blackberry, tobacco and black pepper alongside fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity.

James Suckling (JS) : 94 Points (2017)
Beautiful aromas of dried fruit, such as figs and walnuts, following through to a full body with chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. It’s rich and round with lots of fruit and a soft, pretty finish. Drink now or hold.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 91 Points (2017)
The 2017 La Grola offers mineral-infused blackberries with a dusting of violet pastille and hints of fresh coffee grounds. Its textures are silky and elegant, with a polished display of ripe red and black fruits gaining further depth as savory herbs and spices evolve toward the close. Finishes long with hints of mocha and balsamic-tinged sour cherry. While I don’t see the 2017 as the most age-worthy rendition of La Grola, it is certainly a pleasure today and will continue to show well over the medium term.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 90 Points (2015)
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. Drink now through 2028.

Planeta Eruzione 1614 Carricante 2019
Planeta Eruzione 1614 Carricante 2019
The history of Etna is studded with the historic eruptions which have shaped it. That of 1614 is legendary, lasting ten years and the longest ever recorded, halting just on the border of the vineyards of Sciaranuova. A name strongly evocative of our Cru dell’Etna; Carricante with a small addition of Riesling. High altitude black soils confer a fresh, savoury and mineral style.
