A fine aromatic nose with layers of redcurrant and ripe red fruit, mingling with spicy, smoky notes. A taut, structured palate with sour cherry, blossom, liquorice and notes of leather. A complex and elegant expression of Nebbiolo combining vibrant acidity, perfectly poised tannins and great depth of spicy fruit.

Produced from Nebbiolo grapes cultivated in Poderi Colla's Cascine Drago estate in the Alba DOC region. The vineyards are around 350m above sea level. The vines in the Pian Bosco vineyard were planted in 1967 and those in the Luino vineyard were planted in 1989. Vine density is around 4,000 plants per hectare and the average annual yield is 5,000 litres per hectare. Harvesting is usually done in early October. The hand-picked Nebbiolo grapes are placed in small baskets and taken to the winery where they are de-stalked and softly pressed. The grapes are then macerated on the skins for 10 to 12 days at a controlled temperature of around 28 to 30 degrees Centigrade. This is followed by a malolactic fermentation which is completed before the winter. The wine is matured in some Slavonian and some French oak casks, partly new, for 8 to 12 months.
