As a tribute to the uniqueness of La Grola, the idea matured of setting up a gallery of artists’ labels.

For the 2015 vintage of La Grola, Leonardo Ulian – inspired by James Frazer’s The Golden Bough – pays homage to the link between books and wine
and creates Dionysian Circuit, where the threads of his artistic narration intertwine beautifully with the depiction of the vine rows in the vineyard.

«Symbols are for me as important as reality is. ‘Dionysian circuit’, the artwork for La Grola is a metaphoric circuit, a decoded flow of elements I have recognized in this mesmerizing vineyard. From these reconnected fragments, I wanted to reshape a new map of the real». Leonardo Ulian

This wine is the extraordinary result of the meeting of two great personalities: the hill of La Grola and Valpolicella’s autochthonous grapes. The excellent exposure of the vineyards – which enjoy the sun’s warm rays and the cool breezes that comes from nearby Lake Garda – allows the grapes to achieve their highest potential.
Careful, craftsman-like ageing in the cellar yields a red wine with great elegance, harmony and finesse that can evolve well for over a decade.

After being fermented in stainless steel with regular, daily pumping over, the wine is aged in French oak barriques for 16 months, 2 months in large Slavonian oak casks, and 10 months in the bottle. 

Deep ruby red in colour, this wine brims with character and personality. It is a wine with a full and enveloping aroma, with hints of blackcurrant, spicy notes of juniper and black pepper, tobacco and coffee. It is fresh and intense on the palate with excellent aromatic persistence. 

La Grola is ideal with red meat dishes, roasted or served with gravy, especially lamb and goat. Delicious with stewed or grilled mushrooms and mature, non-sharp cheeses. Serve at 16-18°C and open one hour before serving.
