Attractive varietal aromas of lime with delicately floral, lightly honeyed notes. The palate is fine and taut with crisp green apple, lime and mineral notes giving complexity and concentration. A serious wine, but in a gently Italianate way - which, with bottle age, develops the complex, spicy notes typical of fine, mature Riesling.

Production Notes

Made from Riesling grapes cultivated in Poderi Colla's Cascine Drago Estate in Alba. The vineyard faces west-northwest and is around 350 metres above sea level. The vines were planted in 1987. Vine density is 4,000 plants per hectare and average yield is 5,000 litres per hectare. The hand-selected Riesling grapes are soft-pressed and allowed to settle at 8 to 10 degrees C for 24 hours. The must is then fermented in stainless steel at a controlled temperature of 22 degrees C 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.

Producer Information

Established in 1993 by Tino Colla (brother of the legendry Beppe Colla) and his niece Federica, Poderi Colla is very much a family affair and continues the Colla family's three centuries of winemaking heritage in northern Italy.

Tino and Federica believe in a non-interventionist approach to winemaking, to give each wine a unique expression of site and vintage, and they take sustainability and the environment as seriously as their wines.

They produce wines from three outstanding sites in Alba and cover nearly the entire spectrum of Alba styles - using their own grapes from vineyards in Bricco del Drago, Tenuta Roncaglie (Barbaresco) and Tenuta Dardi le Rose (Barolo). The wines are balanced, rich and complex.
