Winemaker's Notes: Ruby red in color, with aromas of black fruit, vanilla, and clove, Bolla Cabernet Sauvignon is well balanced with a silky pepper and black-currant finish. Hand-harvested grapes are fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel for about one week with twice-daily pumpings over to obtain color, soft tannins, and optimal extraction. The wine undergoes barrique ageing, resulting in a touch of vanilla which increases the wineâ€™s complexity without masking the aroma of this variety. 10% of the wine is then aged in French and American oak barrels for 4 months before blending. Bolla Cabernet Sauvignon pairs perfectly with roasted red meats, rich pastas, and grilled vegetables.

|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.
