The vineyards of Bolla's Torr'alta reside within the famous and ancient winemaking province of Verona, Italy. They feature a soil composition of stone, calcareous clay, and basalt outcroppings, giving range and complexity to the vines and the resulting wine. The grape varietals of corvina and rondinella, largely featured alongside cabernet sauvignon and merlot, in this red blend are lesser known outside the Veneto, but much loved by those natives who know them best. Corvina is known for its tart, cherry flavor. Rondinella is known for its rich ruby color and gentle, red berry aromas.
Torr'alta is made utilizing the traditional 'appassimento' style, meaning the grapes are laid to rest, typically on straw mats, and dried before pressing into wine. This technique has its roots in feudal Italy, is natural, and adds concentration, richness and elegance to the wine.
