Bright ruby red with hints of black cherry on the nose. Bolla Bardolino is soft and fruit-forward, with black-fruit flavors followed by a bright and fresh finish. It is intended to be enjoyed young. Hand-harvested grapes undergo temperature controlled maceration to preserve as much fruit freshness and typical varietal character as possible. After fermentation, the wine undergoes a partial malolactic fermentation for smoothness and is then stored in temperature-controlled stainless steel to preserve its fruit aroma and crispness. Bolla Bardolino pairs perfectly with fleshy fish, beef, lamb, red-sauced pastas and pizza.

|This bright ruby red wine has hints of black cherryon the nose. It is soft and fruit-forward, with black-fruit flavors followed by a bright and fresh finish. Serve it as the Italians do – young and lightly chilled. Pairs perfectly with fleshy fish, beef, lamb, red-sauced pastas and pizza.
|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.
