About the Wine

From the birthplace of pizza, San Marzano tomatoes, mozzarella di Bufala, and so many more gastronomic treasures come this regional red wine in Campania.

If you're looking for an anytime wine, rich with blueberry fruit, a touch of herbs, and mocha, this is the wine for you. Very little oak on this wine makes it a perfect match for a variety of foods or on its own. With 98 points, this wine is one of Luca Maroni's "The Best Italian Wines" 

La Bollina Winery is one to watch. This impressive Italian estate is creating innovative, fun, amazing value wines. Thanks to its high-quality and uniqueness, this winery has quickly become Luca Maroni's darling, who has blessed it with impressive reviews year after year. 

La Bollina is located in Serravalle Scrivia AL, Italy. A municipality in the province of Alessandria, about 62 miles southeast of Turin. This historical territory was for centuries the residence of the Marchioness Figari of Genova. A 300-acre winery, surrounded by hills and chestnut forests, is where La Bollina's magnificent wines are born.

Besides¬†having 70 acres of cultivated vineyards, and an excellent and well-equipped cellar, in La Bollina you can find luxury accommodation for guests: An ‚ÄúArt Nouveau‚ÄĚ style villa, a modern 4-star hotel, and a 9-hole golf course that expands throughout the vineyards. Bollina winery is completely renovated and has some of¬†the most advanced techniques, systems, and instruments in modern winemaking.

Andrea Bernardini, La Bollina's consultant, is a passionate winemaker who has hit numerous home runs. In 2007, he graduated from Pisa, one of the best schools of enology in Italy. He earned his chops at Poggio Bonelli and Ruffino in Tuscany and trained in South Africa, Romania and Greece. After several years of experience, he is now a flying winemaker blending tradition and modern techniques to obtain high-quality wines with respect to the expression of the different grapes and terroir in which he works. He works hand in hand with Alex to produce these magical wines. 

Aging: 6 months in French oak barrels. 

Tasting Notes: 100% Aglianico. Cherries and blackberries are perfectly blended with the soft notes of wood that give this wine the pleasantness typical of the area from which the grapes come. Fruity notes are mixed with the vanilla and mocha sensations coming from the aging, good palate, full body, and roundness giving this wine excellent drinkability.
