(2004 Vintage) "This single-vineyard blend of 70% Corvina Veronese, 15% Rondinella, 10% Syrah and 5% Sangiovese is a full-bodied, intense and elegant red wine. All grapes are harvested from one of the most noble and prestigious vineyards in the Valpolicella Classico area: the La Grola vineyard, with its chalky and clayey soils, is located 1,000 feet above sea level. Aged 16 months in French oak, this wine is matured for almost one year in bottle for extra finesse." -Importer

Robert Parker(1999 Vintage) ". . . aged in both small barrels and the bigger foudres. A saturated dense purple color is accompanied by sumptuous aromas of graphite, blackberries, black currants, plums, and tar. A seamless entry on the palate is followed by a sweet, concentrated fruit. This terrific, sexy, full throttle red possesses both power and elegance. Drink it over the next 10-12 years "
