Winemaker's Notes: Straw yellow with hints of melon, pineapple and peach, Bolla Chardonnay has a lingering finish. Fully ripe and healthy grapes are selected for Bolla Chardonnay. After crushing, the must, that during pressing was kept in contact with skins to increase aroma and enhance structure, is fermented at controlled temperatures. Alcoholic fermentation is followed by a partial malolactic fermentation to preserve freshness and balance. Bolla Chardonnay is a perfect match for fish, mild risottos, melon and prosciutto, and white meats.
|Wine maker notes
|A complex, stylish wine with flavors of light citrus, juicy pear, pineapple and a hint of vanilla. This refreshing medium-bodied dry wine is delicious alone or with fish, mild risottos, melon and prosciutto, and white meats.
|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.
