Classic Bolla Valpolicella: An appealing bouquet and flavor characteristic of berries, bit-ter almonds, plums, raisins, spicy black cherry, and tea. The taste is dry, velvety, medi-um-bodied, very fruity, and well-balanced.
NOTES: After crushing and destemming the grapes, a cool fermenta-tion took place to retain many of the aromatic fragrances and fruitiness. After alcoholand malolactic fermentation, the wine aged in stainless steel tanks to retain its fruit andcrispness. Bolla Valpolicella is ruby-red in color, tending to garnet with aging.
