Bolla - Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOCG (V)
OverviewTerroir: Upper hillside zone of the Valpolicella Classico zone in Italy. Marley soil.
Vinification: Select grapes are picked and then arranged on flat drawers and kept in a dry, cool, well-ventilated room during a four-month natural drying period. The dried grapes are pressed and go through a cold maceration with skins and stems intact for about 20 days. The juice is then fermented for 25 more days and then transferred to barriques and large Slavonian oak casks for 24 to 36 months.

"Aromas of French oak, coconut, fruitcake and eucalyptus take shape on this full-bodied red. The tightly wound, assertive palate offers raisin, incense and orange zest framed in close-grained, rather astringent tannins."
