Allegrini La Grola Veronese, 2001

Well, here goes - my first wine review. We have had a lot of great Tuscan wine in the last few months, but this is a bottle from the Veneto, and from a very solid producer, Allegrini. It is a blend of 70% Corvina Veronese, 15% Rondinella, 10% Syrah and 5% Sangiovese. It spends 17 months in oak (then about a year in the bottle), but that was not over powering to me. I opened the bottle for an hour plus but did not decant it. In the glass it is a beautiful deep ruby to purple, no bricking at the edges at all. Very full of fruit, and smooth, a simply delicious, elegant wine, which definitely seems ready to drink now. After a couple of hours the finish got a little tougher with some bite at the back of the throat. If you can find this in the 15 to 18€ a bottle range it seems well worth it. I don't know how much of this gets to the states or the prices there. This wine is available on Allegrini 2001 La Grola
