Riesling DOC Langhe
Price per bottle 0,75l
In 1993, Tino Colla and his niece, Federica, decided to join forces and create a new wine venture in the setting of the Langhe Albesi, driven by their attachment to their roots – those of a family that had been wine growers for generations – and by the desire to build something all their own while at the same time abiding by tradition. Poderi Colla comprises the following properties: Cascine Drago in Alba; Tenuta Roncaglia di Barbaresco and the Dardi Le Rose estate in Monforte. Three properties occupying outstanding sites, each specialising in growing different types of wine and covering a near-complete spectrum of Alba winemaking. Beppe Colla, Federica’s father and Tino’s brother, makes a fundamental contribution: over 60 years (his first harvest was back in 1949) of unique, impassioned, top-level experience in the production of Alba’s fine reds.Tino’s eldest son, Pietro, has been playing an active role on the Colla team since 2007; he was born in 1980 and has followed in the family’s footsteps by attending the Alba Winemaking School and graduating in oenology at Turin University in 2006. All the wine - around 150,000 bottles yearly - is made from grapes grown on the estate, thus ensuring greater direct control at every step in the process, from vineyard cultivation to winemaking, maturing and bottling.
A Rhenish Riesling planted in Cascine Drago in the 1980s: with fresh citrus flavours in the first year, it later develops the classic complex notes of this grape variety, still with fresh acidity, which gives it good ageing potential.
