Poderi Colla Campo Romano Pinot Nero Langhe DOC

2016

In a Nutshell

A classically-styled Pinot Noir, but true to its Piemontese roots.

Tasting Notes

A complex, savoury nose with a lively bouquet of raspberries, strawberries and a hint of white pepper. The palate has a very appealing, gentle, silky texture with ripe red fruit, fresh acidity and a hint of oak - lifted with bright, delicate strawberry characters on the finish. An elegant and complex expression of Pinot Noir - classically European with complex savoury notes giving a noticeably Piemontese accent.

Production Notes

Made from 100% Pinot Nero (Pinot Noir) grapes cultivated on the Campo Romano vineyard on Poderi Colla's Cascine Drago estate in Alba. The slopes on this west-facing vineyard are at an altitude of around 330 metres above sea level. The vines were planted in 1977 and vine density is 4,000 per hectare. The average annual yield is 3,500 to 4000 litres per hectare. The harvest is generally carried out between 10 to 20 September. The hand harvested grapes are placed in small baskets and taken to the winery where they are immediately destalked and pressed. Fermentation is carried out with maceration on the skins lasting for 8 to 10 days (maximum temperature 30 degrees Centigrade). This is followed by malolactic fermentation which is completed before the winter. The wine is matured in Slavonian and French oak casks, partly new, for 8 to 12 months.
