Bolla is one of the oldest Amarone houses and more than 130 years later, the winery Bolla has grown into a world-renowned winery with a wide range of wines. What has remained is the unique taste of the Bolla wines arising 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 spent thirteen years at Marchesi Antinori and several years at Domaine Baron de Rothschild.

The name Tufaie comes from the old name of the Tufa Quarries that once surrounded Verona. This gold colored volcanic stone, like the color of this wine, was used to build the most beautiful churches and the 'Teatro Romano'. In the glass, this Sur Lie and wood-aged Soave is golden yellow with notes of citrus, melon, grapefruit, pear, a hint of herbs and honey in the nose. On the palate, this full bodied Soave has beautiful aromas of acacia flowers, ripe white fruit and dried almonds. The taste is intense and soft. Full of a fantastic structure and an intensely long aftertaste. This Tufaie Soava is a perfect accompaniment to risotto, veal, or freshwater fish.

This version is packed in beautiful wrapping paper (see image).

“Different from other Soaves. Tufaie is in a class of its own. For those who love it: raised on wood. Long-term bearing 'sur lies'. This makes it richer, more complex and fuller. Marzipan fruit: peach, mango and banana. Something coconut. Sufficiently fresh. Velvet freshness. Forms a classic combination with a returning classic from the Wina Born era: trout with almonds” , Harold Hamersma in DGH 2018, rated with an 8.5.

“Admittedly, the other Soaves from Bolla that I tasted are also fine. Otherwise. Sit a little harder in their acids. Tufaie is in a class of its own. Complex, but accommodating. Adapts to your mood like a chameleon. Know exactly when you need creaminess or silky acidity. Rich, matured yellow fruit. Beautiful”, Harold Hamersma in DGH 2017, assessed with an 8.5.

“The best possible introduction to Bolla is the Tufaie, a Soave Superiore that was partly barrel aged and composed of 85% Garganega, complemented by Trebbiano di Soave. Bottled in a heavy bottle, the still youthful-looking wine tastes pleasant, fresh and very juicy with a slightly nutty and at the same time mild fruity aroma towards peach and pear and will form a wonderful partner ship with, for example, freshwater fish” Hubrecht Duijker
