Winemaker Notes

This cru is documented as far back as the mid-1800s as one of its appellation's finest. From southerly exposed vines, 240-280 meters above sea level; aged in oak 12 to 14 months. Remarkable elegance and complexity.

Poderi Colla Poderi Colla Vineyard Views Winery Image
The first Colla winemaker worked in the Langhe hills in 1703. Our own times have witnessed the legendary career of Beppe Colla (born in 1930) who is said to know every vine in every vineyard around Alba, and was one of the founding fathers of the Alba DOCs in the 1960’s. In 1993, Beppe's talented daughter, Federica, joined forces with his younger brother Tino, and founded Poderi Colla. This challenging new venture combined the family heritage of many generations, the long-standing traditions of their terroir, and the future of Alba county’s wine-making. Their synergy brought together three outstanding estates ("poderi") under a single quality hallmark: Poderi Colla. The three properties are Cascine Drago, just outside Alba, Tenuta Roncaglia, in Barbaresco, and Tenuta Dardi Le Rose, in Barolo's prestigious Bussia cru. Today the wines are expertly styled by Beppe and Tino's son Pietro. Total vineyard surface is 64.2 acres.

Barbaresco

Piedmont, Italy

A wine that most perfectly conveys the spirit and essence of its place, Barbaresco is true reflection of terroir. Its star grape, like that in the neighboring Barolo region, is Nebbiolo. Four townships within the Barbaresco zone can produce Barbaresco: the actual village of Barbaresco, as well as Neive, Treiso and San Rocco Seno d'Elvio.

Broadly speaking there are more similarities in the soils of Barbaresco and Barolo than there are differences. Barbaresco’s soils are approximately of the same two major soil types as Barolo: blue-grey marl of the Tortonion epoch, producing more fragile and aromatic characteristics, and Helvetian white yellow marl, which produces wines with more structure and tannins.

Nebbiolo ripens earlier in Barbaresco than in Barolo, primarily due to the vineyards’ proximity to the Tanaro River and lower elevations. While the wines here are still powerful, Barbaresco expresses a more feminine side of Nebbiolo, often with softer tannins, delicate fruit and an elegant perfume. Typical in a well-made Barbaresco are expressions of rose petal, cherry, strawberry, violets, smoke and spice. These wines need a few years before they reach their peak, the best of which need over a decade or longer. Bottle aging adds more savory characteristics, such as earth, iron and dried fruit.

Responsible for some of the most elegant and age-worthy wines in the world, Nebbiolo, named for the ubiquitous autumnal fog (called nebbia in Italian), is the star variety of northern Italy’s Piedmont region. Grown throughout the area, as well as in the neighboring Valle d’Aosta and Valtellina, it reaches its highest potential in the Piedmontese villages of Barolo, Barbaresco and Roero. Outside of Italy, growers are still very much in the experimentation stage but some success has been achieved in parts of California. Somm Secret—If you’re new to Nebbiolo, start with a charming, wallet-friendly, early-drinking Langhe Nebbiolo or Nebbiolo d'Alba.
