Poderi Colla Langhe Riesling DOC

2014

In a Nutshell

A rare example of great Italian Riesling -bone dry and mineral rich.

Tasting Notes

Attractive aromas of lime and citrus with more developed Riesling characters. The palate is textured with juicy, ripe lime and mineral notes giving complexity and richness - all balanced by lively acidity. A serious wine, developing complex, spicy notes typical of fine, mature Riesling.

Production Notes

The hand-selected Riesling grapes are soft-pressed and allowed to settle at 8 to 10 degrees Centigrade for 24 hours. The must is then fermented in stainless steel at a controlled temperature of 22 degrees Centigrade maximum. This is followed by a partial malolactic fermentation and the wine is left on the lees for a few months. Finally, the wine is cooled and clarified before being bottled in the spring.

Press Quotes & Awards

This is the only white wine Tino Colla makes, from a vineyard planted on a north-facing slope behind his winery, because he much prefers it to the other native Italian white grapes. [residual sugar] RS 4 g/l. Smoky, almost oily and complex. Rich and dry-tasting with intense lime freshness. 16.5/20
