Poderi Colla Current Releases

 

`Pian Balbo` Dolcetto d`Alba

The Dolcetto comes from a vineyard planted in 1970. It is fermented entirely in stainless steel and is the only wine in Poderi Colla's cellar that doesn't see any oak casks. 

`Costa Bruna` Barbera d`Alba

This comes from Barbera grown in Ronconglie, in the Barbaresco zone. They chose to not rip out the Barbera because the vineyard is old (planted in 1930). It is Poderi Colla's only Barbera vineyard. The wine is aged in oak casks.

Bricco del Drago

Nebbiolo d`Alba

The Nebbiolo d'Alba comes from a single vineyard on the border of Barbaresco. Because of it's location and potential, the Collas age it as they would a more serious wine. It macerates on its skins for 10 - 12 days and ages in large oak casks for one year before aging in bottle for an additional year before release.
