Review: Bolla Valpolicella 2005

by Wine reviews

The Bolla Valpolicella is an Italian wine that we picked up on a whim.  We were looking for something different, and wanted something Italian.  This wine was about $17 USD dollars a bottle.

The wine had a good, deep, very dark red color.  The aroma of the wine has hints of raisins.  We were disappointed that there weren’t more aromas.

The flavor of the wine was very grapey.  It has a slight hint of cherry, but not nearly as strong as their label indicates.  It was a bit alcoholic and had a slow strong burn as it went down.  The wine was also a bit thinner than we were hoping.  It didn’t taste watery, but it felt watery in the mouth.

Overall we give this wine 6 out of 10.

I live in Denver, Colorado. This blog is everything about beer, wine, cider, mead and other spirits.
I am a avid homebrewer and winemaker. I’ve been making my own beer and wine for many years. I started making beer when I was in college (mostly because the drinking age in the United States is 21). My first few beers were horrible. The beers are much better now, and I often supply my neighborhood with free beer! It is a great hobby!
