Poderi Colla Nebbiolo d’Alba 2020
Grape Variety: Nebbiolo 100%
This is no ordinary Nebbiolo d’Alba. It sits on a hillside just across the road from Barbaresco vineyards on nearly the same dirt: sandy limestone marls.
The Collas stop at nothing short of treating it with the same reverence in the cellar as they do their Bussia Barolo and Roncaglie Barbaresco. It’s made just the same (in large, old wooden botte) and aged for the same requirement as a Barbaresco—two years before bottling with more than nine months in wood; in this case, the wine is aged for a full year in wood.
This is serious juice, and if you want to keep your budget straight and drink special wines on a regular basis at good prices, it’s a must.
