Wine description

In 1950 the grandson of the founder of the Valpolicella winery bottled the grandfather’s favourite wine for his 80th birthday. It was the Amarone. So it started the history of this wine which was first produced by the Bolla winery. This wine is made by 75% Corvina and Corvinone grapes and the 25% is Rondinella. The grapes are picked perfectly sane and matures and they are suitable to be withered and they are the basis of the production of the Amarone “Le Origini” Riserva of the Bolla. The vineyards are cultivated with the pergola method and are located at Marano and Negrar areas. The grapes once picked rest for 120 days with the optimal temperature, humidity and ventilation. The wither process enriches the sugar concentration and the polyphenolic components. At the end of January there is the pressing, and the pre-fermentation maceration at 5°C for about 7 days. It follows the slow fermentation period for 25 days at 18-22°C. It follows the post-fermentation for 5 days at 24°C. This wine matures in 750 litre barrels for 12 months and other 36 months in barrels of 40 and then of 80 hectolitres. Finally, it takes place the bottle aging for 9 months.
