Additional information

Bolla

Bolla was one of the first wineries from the region to become well-known in the United States for wines such as Soave and Bardolino. It was famously championed by Italian-American singer Frank Sinatra. Bolla claim to be the first company to market Amarone, after bottling a 1950 for the 80th birthday of founder, Alberto Bolla. In honor of this, the top Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is called Le Origini.

A generic Amarone, Recioto Valpolicella Classico and Recioto di Soave Classico complete Bolla's top tier. On top of this, there is a wide range of wines under the Valpolicella, Soave, Bardolino, Custoza, Lugana and Prosecco appellations, as well as varietal wines made from Pinot Grigio, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

The cellar mixes modern and traditional winemaking techniques, combining barriques, stainless steel tanks and hi-tech bottling lines with Slavonian oak vats dating back to 1883. The company established its Valpolicella winery in the 1930s, and by the 1950s their wines were established in numerous export markets. Bolla was bought outright by importer and shareholder Brown-Forman in 2000, and is now owned by Gruppo Italiano Vini.

Production

WINEMAKING METHOD
Clusters are picked when perfectly ripe, then destemmed and soft crushed. After several hours of contact with the skins, the juice goes to stainless steel tanks for fermentation at low temperature. The wine is then left in contact with the fine lees until ready for bottling.
