Holding the glass at a slight angle, a transition in color towards garnet red can be seen at the edges of this barrel-aged wine. When swirling the wine glass, this red wine reveals a high viscosity, which can be seen in church windows at the edge of the glass. In the glass, this red wine from Bolla reveals aromas of black cherries, Nashi pears, quinces, forest fruit confit and blueberries, complemented by black tea, cigar box and oak. The Bolla Le Origini Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva is a wonderfully dry wine for connoisseurs. This red wine is never coarse or austere, but round and smooth. This powerful red wine is full-bodied and multi-layered on the palate. On the finish, this storable red wine from the Veneto wine-growing region impresses with its exceptional length. Once again, there are hints of Nashi pear and blueberry.
