Bolla Pinot Noir Provincia di Pavia IGT 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Advocate #161 (Oct 2005) It's hard to believe the 2003 Syrah Astralis Vineyard could be better, but it offers riveting richness, intensity, purity, and equilibrium. Structurally, it is similar to the Piggott Range, revealing abundant amounts of sweet, ripe tannin, and huge extract, richness, and depth. Meant for true connoisseurs who are willing to forget it for 5-8 years, it represents what Roman Bratasiuk and Clarendon Hills do so well ... show respect for the great traditions of France, but recognize the extraordinary raw materials that emerge from old vines planted in McLaren Vale. This fabulous wine offers both power and elegance, and showcases the extraordinary talent of Roman Bratasiuk. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2030.

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

A nice pinot noir that has a considerable bite. Little astringent for my personal taste. It's okay.

Peared with sting beans and tomato salad with a garlic rosemary dressing wine was intensely excellent bold and flavorful. Side dish included a pork lion oreganato.Wine would Also go well with a chicken marsala dish. I finished the bottle with no guilt or regret and highly recommend this vintage.I toast Bolla for this phenomenal wine... T Triolo Warwick NY

This was a fine wine...pinot noir is extremely popular right now so I'm happy that we were able to jump on a bandwagon and still be pleasantly surprised...this wine was mild, but still had enough kick to it for my taste...fruitful on the nose, but perhaps it wasn't complex enough...pleasant, but could have had a little more...

First nose was very high of alcohol even though the wine only has 12% in alcohol. Little cherry nose and high acidity but once it opened it got a little better. Not the wine I would drink for a special occasion.

Well-balanced and fruit-forward with a fresh taste of black cherry, plum and raspberry. its a delicious, robust red wine.

Ruby red in color with black cherry nuances. On the nose, the wine is clearly elegant, with aromas of wild cherries, black currants, dried spring flowers and a touch of licorice. In the mouth, the wine is well balanced.
