Barbaresco Roncaglie, Poderi Colla

Italy, Piedmont

The flagship wine of Poderi Colla and the epitome of “power and finesse” – wonderful texture, richness and depth of flavour – an Italian classic. Barbaresco is the famous near neighbour to Barolo in Piedmont. Equally fine, Barbaresco has all the power and richness but usually a hauntingly delicate character which makes it totally more-ish. Roncaglie is a leading estate and have been producing stunning wines for the last 20 years. Full-bodied, mineral, with hints of cherry, dark choclate and fine Indian tea.”

Origin

Roncaglie has been recognised as one of the best and most important areas for Barbaresco production since the 19th century, and is mentioned in Lorenzo Fantini's important publication on Viticulture and Oenology in the Province of Cuneo. 2010 was a fantastic vintage in Piedmont and this has the makings of one of the finest ever releases from Poderi Colla.

Grape Variety

100% Nebbiolo.

Two main clones of Nebbiolo are used (Lampia and Michet), destemmed and then fermented for over 15 days at 30⁰C. The wine is aged in a mix of French and Slovenian oak for up to 14 months.

Alcohol Percentage

14%

Cellar Potential

The structure and density, along with sweet ripe berry fruit makes it approachable now - or can easily be cellared for 10 years. Do decant before serving and enjoy in Pinot Noir "bowl" shaped glasses.

Producer

Poderi Colla was founded in 1993 by Tino and Federica Colla, brother and daughter of the legendary Beppe Colla; he was one of the masterminds behind the Prunotto name and a leading figure in the development of the Alba DOC’s in the 1960’s. The Colla family have adopted what they call a "non-interventionist approach", enabling each parcel of vines to capture the expression of site and vintage. In this case, Tenuta Roncaglie is one of the best historically sited Barbaresco crus, ideal for the production of Nebbiolo grapes.

Food Match

Classically matched in Italy with fine cuts of beef, or wild boar. Goes very well with all red meats, game and casseroles.

In the press

Wine Enthusiast: "This single-vineyard Barbaresco opens with classic Nebbiolo aromas of violet, rose, spice and berry. The palate shows bright cherry and white pepper flavors and notes of menthol and eucalyptus... should age wonderfully." 92 Points
