Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2008 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is made from 70% Corvina and Corvinone and 30% is a mix of indigenous grapes. The wines wood regime is mostly botte grande but a percentage is aged in French barrique for 18 months, resulting in extra spice and richness. Black fruit, dried fig, leather, tar, spicy tobacco and barbecue smoke emerge from the glass. The finish is powerful, dense and you definitely feel that 15.8% alcohol. Drink 2015-2022. (Oct 2013)

Wine maker notes
Made only in exceptional years, Amarone is lushly flavored, intensely concentrated and silky-textured. It is deep garnet, velvety-red in color with aromas of wild-cherry jam, spice and hints of cedar. It delivers rich, dry, black-cherry flavors and a finish that is long, round, and persistent with cacao and spice. Enjoy Bolla Amarone with red meats, roasts and grilled dishes, game, braised meats, and all well aged cheeses.

Producer
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.
