Bolla Le Poiane 2018 Ripasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore is crafted by a winery with over 130 years of winemaking history. A rich, full-bodied and vibrant blend of the classics: Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella, made in Ripasso style. Look for dark cherry, dark berry, forest floor and herbal aromas and flavours finishing long and juicy on the palate. Pour with slow-roasted short ribs.
