Poderi Colla Pian Balbo Dolcetto d’Alba DOC

2018

In a Nutshell

This bright and fruity food-friendly wine is from Poderi Colla's Cascine Drago estate in Alba.

Tasting Notes

A lovely nose of plum, cherry, violet, sweet spice and dried herbs. The palate has lots of fresh fruit flavours, including sour cherry and plum with refreshing acidity. The mouthfeel is crunchy and vibrant with a firm, dry and savoury finish - great served with food, perhaps lightly chilled.

Production Notes

The Dolcetto grapes are sourced from Colla's Cascine Drago estate - where the average age of vines is 20 years, planted at around 350m altitude. The grapes are immediately destalked and crushed, and then macerated on the skins for 5-7 days. Malolactic fermentation is completed before winter sets in. The wine stabilises in stainless steel, and then rests for a few months in bottle.
