Product Code: ITEN512

Availability: In stock



Country: Italy, Valpolicella

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

Time and space are the fundamental elements of Hiroyuki Masuyama’s entire creativity: everything gravitates around these two concepts which, variously formalized over the years, have become the hallmark of his work. Via a highly-innovative process, the Limited Edition of La Grola is the fascinating synthesis of ‘overlapping images’ of one of Valpolicella Classica’s iconic vineyards.

The japanese artist describes his work in his own words:  “My work is a document of the time and space.  panoramic photograph  Time: 12.08.2018 / 00:00 - 24:00 / 24 hours / 1.440 minutes  Space: 45° 32’ 11” north latitude and 10° 50’ 29” east latitude  Photographing: 96 x 3 = 288 pieces of photographs / each time distance = 15 minutes”

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. 

Varietal: Blend of 90% Corvina Veronese, 10% Oseleta

Pairing: 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.
