Producer details

Produced from Nebbiolo grapes cultivated in Poderi Colla's Cascine Drago estate in the Alba DOC region.

In the vineyard

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.

In the winery

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.

Food Recommendations

Serve with grilled steak and red meat, or alternatively robust pasta dishes with wild boar or rabbit ragu.
