Amarone della Valpolicella "La Groletta" by Corte Giara represents an eclectic and modern interpretation of the Veronese winemaking tradition that comes from a project developed in 1989 by the Allegrini family, historical managers of the homonymous farm strongly rooted in Valpolicella since the middle of the nineteenth century. The need for which Corte Giara was created is to decline the classic production, adapting it to daily consumption while maintaining the high value of the labels, for which Allegrini is famous throughout the world. Specifically, this Amarone faithfully reflects the tradition that elected it as a great internationally renowned red, while retaining a new modern style inside, in step with the evolution of contemporary taste.
Corte Giara "La Groletta" begins its vinification with the drying of the grapes in the fruit cellar for a period following the harvest which lasts for about 4 months. During this drying the grapes progress naturally with ripening and lose about 40% of their weight, thus concentrating the sugary and aromatic substances inside them. Then follows a vinification of the dried grapes in steel containers at a controlled temperature and an aging divided in equal parts in large Slavonian barrels and second passage barriques.
"La Groletta" by Corte Giara Amarone has an organoleptic profile that reveals a deep, impenetrable ruby red color of full consistency, proof of the concentration caused by withering. The aromatic bouquet impresses with the power of fruit reminiscent of ripe cherries and morello cherries and is framed by a persuasive peppery spice and cloves in the majority. The range of aromas is enriched by a clear tobacco scent accompanied by a slight minerality. The sip is enveloping, intense and soft, however balanced by a freshness of crunchy fruit and a velvety and intriguing tannin.
