Descrizione vino

This is the symbolic wine of the Bolla winery from Veneto. This is made by 70% of Corvina and Corvinone grapes and 30% of other local vines. In every passage of the manual harvest are selected the 10-15% of the ripen bunches. The wither step occurs at 450 meters above the sea level in the Torbe di Negrar hamlet. During the pressing  the grapes achieve a sugar concentration of 22,5 and 24,4 grams per liter. The Amarone Bolla is produced in the Classic area. During the vegetative phase there are removed the weak buds and the bunches are deprived of some basic leaves. The wine making process starts in January when the withered grapes are ready. The fermentation temperature and  the maceration period are carefully checked to obtain wonderful tannins. The profit is the 40%. There is a long maceration for 36 months in oak barrels. And part of the wine refines for 18 months in French oak barrels. It follows the 2 months aging in bottle.
