Poderi Colla Barbera d'Alba Costa Bruna 2001

Member Review by mplieber:

I drank this wine at a lovely restaurant in Boston (Via Matta) to accompany our family dinner to celebrate our daughter's graduation. It was a delicious and memorable wine to suit the occasion. Nice nose, slight tannin, many fruity flavors, yet subtle and integrated.

Poderi Colla:
In 1993, Tino Colla and his niece Federica decided to combine forces, creating a new wine venture in the glorious tradition of the Alba and Langhe territory.

In 1993, Tino Colla and his niece Federica decided to combine forces, creating a new wine venture in the glorious tradition of the Alba and Langhe territory. The Collas’ loyalty to the roots of classic Piedmontese viniculture sprang from a family heritage going back through many generations; the individual, respectfully innovative drive was all their own. Tino and Federica thus founded Poderi Colla. This is made up of three distinct properties: Cascine Drago in Alba, heart of the Langhe appellation; Tenuta Roncaglia, which takes its name from the historic Barbaresco cru; and Tenuta Dardi Le Rose, forming part of the renowned Barolo Bussia cru in Monforte. Three outstanding locations for three great categories: a near-complete spectrum of Alba winemaking. Beppe Colla, Federica’s father and Tino’s brother, supplies a fundamental contribution with his constant support and collaboration. He brings with him the unique, impassioned oenological experience of fifty years at the highest levels of Alba’s star reds. Production - around 150,000 bottles yearly - is entirely estate-bottled, in order to ensure direct quality control of each phase of the winemaking process from vineyard to bottle. Read less
