1997 Bolla Amarone Della Valpolicella DOCG

SKU #1348146

Monica Larner writes: "Bolla shares a unique relationship with the American market. Bolla’s 1950 Amarone was the first Amarone sold in the United States and Bolla Soave was the quintessential cheap Italian white four or five decades ago. The successful brand has no doubt seen its share of corporate drama, going from Bolla family hands to American giant Brown-Forman back to Italian hands under Gruppo Italiano Vini (GIV). Since 2008, Banfi Vintners was appointed Bolla’s exclusive importer for the United States and considerable investments were made. The people behind Bolla have always believed that Soave and Valpolicella would one day see a return to the limelight, and they were right. Bolla’s secret weapon is Director and Winemaker Christian Scrinzi, a notoriously hard worker, who has dedicated himself to turning the brand around. Every year I taste his wines, I notice slight increments in improved quality despite the large volume produced."

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world.
