Bolla Bardolino 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

This sumptuous wine has flavors of berries, cherries and almonds, enhanced with subtle oak, vanilla and spice complexity from aging in new oak casks. This wine pairs well with rich pastas, grilled red meats, salmon, and soft cheeses.

Bolla:
Like all great legacies, the story of Bolla wines begins simply enough with one man, Abele Bolla. Abele lived in northern Italy in the Veneto region where he ran a small family inn. Wishing to offer his guests a superior experience, Abele made a decision that would launch his family’s business into the international spotlight. He decided to make and serve his own wine, a Soave.

Like all great legacies, the story of Bolla wines begins simply enough with one man, Abele Bolla. Abele lived in northern Italy in the Veneto region where he ran a small family inn. Wishing to offer his guests a superior experience, Abele made a decision that would launch his family’s business into the international spotlight. He decided to make and serve his own wine, a Soave. The year was 1883. The Soave Abele made was a fresh, crisp golden-hued wine. It was immediately recognized as being true to the land, a wine that captured the essence of the Veneto region. Requests for Abele’s wine grew as more and more friends, family and guests tasted his handiwork. It was not long before the Bolla family dedicated all its time to producing fine regional wines from Italy. And the rest, as the saying goes, is history. Fast-forward a century and a quarter. Today all award-winning Bolla wines are hand-harvested and created in Italy. The distinct flavors of the grapes can be attributed to the unique climate, soil and temperature of the region in which they are grown. Our goal is to capture those nuances so you will experience an authentic taste of Italy in every glass of Bolla wine. Read less

This wine is garnet red in color and has bouquet of black pepper, cedar hints, fresh fruits (grapes, berries) and walnuts. Valpolicella is medium bodied, has long persistence with smoky character, due to a short ageing process in Slavonian oak casks of 4,000-8,000 liters (1,058-2,115 gallon), as well as in used American and French barrels, to stabilize color, improve wine complexity and soften tannins. - Winery
