Poderi Colla Roncaglie Barbaresco DOCG

2012

In a Nutshell

Roncaglie, producing fantastic Barbaresco for over a century, provides this fine example of it's great quality.

Tasting Notes

Complex bouquet showing typical rose nuances as well as layers of spice and woodland fruits. The palate is full-bodied, with hints of cherry, dark chocolate and prunes with firm sweet tannins on the finish. The sweet ripe berry fruit makes it approachable now or can be cellared for 20 years.

Production Notes

The Nebbiolo grapes (Lampia and Michet subvarieties)are destalked and pressed and the must is macerated on the skins for around 12 to 15 days at 30 degrees Centigrade. This if followed by a malolactic fermentation which is completed before the winter. The wine is transferred to some Slavonian and some French oak casks (partly new) and left to mature for 12 to 14 months. After maturation with wine is racked to stainless steel vats and clarified with fresh egg whites before bottling.
