Wine Advocate 90 points - Big, leathery and ripe, the 2010 Creso is a unique blend of Corvina (65%) and Cabernet. Timing of the Corvina harvest is calculated to give this component a fruity characteristic with standard sugar and phenolic ripeness. In other words, care is taken not to harvest too late. The Cabernet, on the other hand, is air-dried until the berries lose 30% of their natural water weight. When the Cabernet is pressed in November, that wine is added to the Corvina-based wine and the blend undergoes a second fermentation. The results are rich and bountiful with thick extract and dark flavors that recall prune, cassis, Christmas spice, nutmeg and old leather. Creso sees 12 months in new oak and Id give it a year or two for better integration. Drink 2014-2020.  (Oct 2013)

Wine Enthusiast 91 points - Made from 65% Corvina and 35% partially dried Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, this structured and gripping wine shows black fruit, red currant, spice and leather aromas. The palate delivers a ripe plum core framed by big, velvety tannins and accents of chocolate, licorice and black pepper. Age this for another three to five years for additional complexities to develop. (Nov 2013)

Like all great legacies, the story of Bolla wines begins simply enough with one man, Abele Bolla. Abele lived in northern Italy in the Veneto region where he ran a small family inn. Wishing to offer his guests a superior experience, Abele made a decision that would launch his family’s business into the international spotlight. He decided to make and serve his own wine, a Soave. The year was 1883. The Soave Abele made was a fresh, crisp golden-hued wine. It was immediately recognized as being true to the land, a wine that captured the essence of the Veneto region. Requests for Abele’s wine grew as more and more friends, family and guests tasted his handiwork. It was not long before the Bolla family dedicated all its time to producing fine regional wines from Italy. And the rest, as the saying goes, is history. Fast-forward a century and a quarter. Today all award-winning Bolla wines are hand-harvested and created in Italy. The distinct flavors of the grapes can be attributed to the unique climate, soil and temperature of the region in which they are grown. Our goal is to capture those nuances so you will experience an authentic taste of Italy in every glass of Bolla wine.
