Wine Review: This midnight black colored Corvina opens with a dark chocolate, green pepper and black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a crushed stone and black cherry blend with notes of blackberry, black pepper and oak. I also detected hints of stewed plum and green olive. The finish is dry and bold dusty tannins build-up and stick around for quite a while. I would decant this wine and serve it with a well-marbled ribeye. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This is a full-bodied, intense and elegant wine. Deep ruby red in color, it has a very broad bouquet that ranges from the typical scents of red berries to juniper, with final notes of tobacco and coffee. The excellent exposure of the vineyards, which enjoy good sunshine and almost constant breezes, allows the grapes to express their highest potential. Skillful ageing in the cellar yields a very elegant and harmonious red that is refined and capable of evolving positively for over a decade. Serve at 61-64°F and open the bottle an hour before consumption.

Buy it: Use 1000 Corks to find stores that sell Allegrini 2017 La Grola.
