Veneto, Italy, 2010/2011
The name, 'Le Origini' means 'in the beginning', a reference to Bolla being the first winery to market 'Amarone' way back in 1953. Made using selected bunches of Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella grapes. After harvesting each year, the grapes are dried on racks until February of the following year before being pressed, fermented and then aged in Slovenian 500 litre oak barrels for 21 months. An incredibly rich and smooth wine with the ability to age in bottle for many years.
