Bolla is one of the oldest Amarone houses and more than 130 years later, the Bolla winery has grown into a world-famous winery with a wide range of wines. What has remained is the unique taste of the Bolla wines resulting from the special climate and terroir of the Veneto area. Oenologist Christian Zulian has been a winemaker at Bolla since 2015. Before joining Bolla, he worked for thirteen years at Marchesi Antinori and several years at Domaine Baron de Rothschild.

In 1950, the grandchildren of the founder of Pedemonte Cellar in Valpolicella bottled their grandfather's favorite wine to celebrate his 80th birthday. That was the Amarone. And so began the commercial history of this wine. The very first Amarone ever made, launched by Bolla, and now loved all over the world. With this Amarone, Bolla rediscovers the origin of wine and produces with dedication and respect for tradition. In the glass, the Bolla amarone has a ruby-red color with a complex nose with aromas of plums and cherries with notes of balsamic. Elegant notes of roasted almond in the aftertaste. The taste is powerful and intense, a true classic.

The Le Poiane Amarone is only made in the top years and ripens longer than the standard Amarone, so it is advisable to set aside a few bottles. The bottle also comes in a luxurious paper sleeve. A true jewel on the table.
