When Abele Bolla opened up Al Gambero Inn in the northern Italian town of Soave over 100 years ago, no one could have guessed that the favorite pastime of winemaking would continue for four generations. Today, the spirit of the Bolla family lives on in the carefully crafted wines we bring to your table.
Bolla Winery Soave
Made from grapes harvested in the hillside vineyards of the Soave Classico area in Veneto, Bolla Soave displays a flowery and delicate aroma and a soft, full taste with a slight sparkle to it. It is a fruity wine with pear and lemon flavors and a slight almond aftertaste. Soave is ideal with light hors di oeuvres, soups, salads, seafood, risotto, paella, poultry and pasta.
Bolla Winery Valpolicella
Dry, full and well-balanced, Valpolicella has a spicy flavor of cherries, berries and other dark fruits. This ruby red wine is particularly good with meat dishes such as roast beef, beef stew and lamb. Serve also with steak fajitas, veal and highly seasoned cheeses.
Bolla Winery Bardolino
The Bardolino region sits on vineyards that overlook the tranquil shores of Lake Garda in the eastern Veneto. With an aroma that is light and delicately fruity, this dry, full-flavored wine carries a fresh raspberry taste to a pleasant finish. Enjoy with risotto, pasta with meat sauces, white meats and smoked fish.
Bolla Winery Pinot Grigio
Pinot Grigio has the fresh, summer fruit flavors of peaches and limes, with a taste that is soft, generous and well-balanced. Light bodied, this wine is a classic accompaniment to fish dishes as well as salads, soups and lighter red-sauced pastas.
Bolla Winery Merlot
In this dry, full wine you will find flavors of ripe black cherries and plums. This ruby red wine goes well with roasted or barbecued beef and lamb, pork or hearty chicken dishes.
Bolla Winery Sangiovese
From the Emilia-Romagna area comes Sangiovese, an easy to drink dry wine with a straightforward, spicy-fruity flavor. Enjoy this wine with a wide variety of foods including pasta with light tomato sauce, ribs, chicken, veal, pork, beef, cold meats and cold salads.
Bolla Winery Chardonnay
Bolla chardonnay grapes come from the Puglia region of Italy, also known as "the heel of the boot." This is a rich wine with light-to-medium texture and refreshingly dry finish. The perfect companion to full-flavored seafood such as salmon and lobster or with pork, honey-glazed ham and smoked turkey.
Bolla Winery Cabernet Sauvignon
Oak aging gives this wine a dry, soft and well-balanced taste and a bouquet of black cherry, plum and subtle herbs. Enjoy with all types of roasted or grilled meats and venison as well as full-bodied cheeses.
