Poderi Colla Nebbiolo d’Alba DOC

2014

In a Nutshell

Classy Nebbiolo from Colla's Cascine del Drago estate in Alba.

Tasting Notes

Delicious lifted aromatics of liquorice, redcurrant and ripe red fruit on the nose, mingling with sour cherry, blossom and notes of leather on the palate. A richly flavoured and multi-layered wine with crunchy cherry fruit and vibrant acidity, perfectly poised tannins and rich spicy fruit. Still on the youthful side this wine will happily keep for the next few years.

Production Notes

The hand-picked Nebbiolo grapes are placed in small baskets and taken to the winery where they are de-stalked and softly pressed. The grapes are then macerated on the skins for 10 to 12 days at a controlled temperature of around 28 to 30 degrees Centigrade. This is followed by a malolactic fermentation which is completed before the winter. The wine is matured in some Slavonian and some French oak casks, partly new, for 8 to 12 months.
