Bolle alcohol-free sparkling wine
Bolle is an alcohol-free sparkling wine company created by Italian-born, Roberto Vanin who wanted to create a wine without the additional calories and hangover. As such Bolle was born and since its creation there are now two options- Bolle Rosa and Bolle Oro, the one I tried today.
Bolle Oro is a white sparkling with 0.5% ABV. It is made by using clever proprietary Bolle technology called Zero Gradi which ferments de-alcoholised wine and a blend of grape juices to create a balanced wine with tight bubbles.
Generally speaking, alcohol-free sparkling wines are the best tasting when it comes to wine varieties so the question is, is award-winning Bolle a keeper of one destined for the sink? Well, you’ll just need to read my review to find out.
Is Bolle sparkling wine any good?
Well, this isn’t my favourite alcohol-free sparkling wine by any means but isn’t awful either. The issue I found with Bolle is that its a bit too sweet and non-substantial. I would have liked more acidity to balance of the sweetness but essentially you’re left with a pleasant sparkling citrus fruit drink.
Aroma & Appearance
You get some interesting fruity aromas when you open a bottle of Bolle. In the glass it has a golden colour and some tight carbonation.
