Bolla Corvina Blend Recioto Della Valpolicella 2000

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

A light, effusive wine. Fruity, joyous berry aromas with black-pepper notes. Easy mouthfeel, raspberry flavors with a touch of spice and tar. A refreshing, easy-drinking red.

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.

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

If you're looking for a simple, crisp Italian white wine with delicate but definitive fruit flavor, Bolla Soave dose it better than most. It's not reaching for sweetness or a contemporary international style. Instead it's an honest, delightfully Veronese white. The same could be said for its red sibling, Bolla Bardolino. In recent years, the firm has made an effort to lighten the style of their Bardolino to return to the classic mode of this regional red and create a recognizable difference from their Valpolicella. The new Bardolino is light, peppery and clean, much better than a beer with a slice of pizza or a simple pasta dinner.
