About the Wine

La Bollina Winery is located in Serravalle Scrivia AL, Italy. A municipality in the province of Alessandria in the Italian region of Piedmont, located about 62 miles southeast of Turin and about 16 miles southeast of Alessandria.

This historical territory, which specializes in DOCD Gavi, was for centuries the residence of the Marchioness Figari of Genova. A 120 ha winery, surrounded by hills and chestnut forests is the location where magnificent wines are made.

Besides having 28 ha of cultivated vineyards, an excellent and well-equipped cellar, in La Bollina you can find luxury accommodation for guests: An “Art Nouveau” style villa, a modern 4-star hotel and a 9-hole golf course that expands throughout the vineyards.

The Bollina winery is completely renovated and has some of the most advanced techniques, systems and instruments in modern winemaking.

Andrea Bernardini is a passionate consultant winemaker who has hit numerous home runs. He graduated from Pisa, one of the best schools of oenology in Italy, in 2007. He earned his chops at Poggio Bonelli and Ruffino in Tuscany and trained in South Africa, Romania and Greece. After several years of experiences, 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.

This wine goes through a short grape maceration. Aged in steel, on the yeast with battonage at low temperature in order to maintain freshness and give structure and balance.

Tasting Notes: Straw yellow color with greenish reflections. On the nose with delicate aromas of fresh fruits and spring flowers. Dry on the palate, with crisp acidity, soft and delicate flavors, moderate intensity and persistence. Due to the freshness of this wine, it pairs excellent with fish and appetizers.
