Barolo Bussia DOCG
Poderi Colla was established in 1993, but has been rooted in Piedmont winemaking for over three hundred years, with its forefathers helping write its history, even helping outline production regulations for Alba DOC wines. The winery aims to create wines with little intervention and lots of intuition, bringing out the best of the terroir. Poderi Colla consists of three estates: Cascine Drago in Alba, located in the heart of the Langhe appellation; Tenuta Roncaglia, in the historic Barbaresco appellation; and Tenuta Dardi Le Rose, seven hectares of Barolo in the coveted Bussia cru in Monforte.
Like Roncaglie for Barbaresco, it was listed in an 1880 monograph about Langhe winemaking by Lorenzo Fantini. Planted in 1970 and 1985, the vineyard is south and southwest-facing.
Harvested in fall, maceration lasts about twelve to fifteen days. Aged twenty-four to twenty-eight months in Slavonian oak barrels. Unfiltered. A majestic, traditional Barolo with power, harmony and complexity but especially perfectly balanced components; extraordinary longevity.
