Nebbiolo d’Alba DOC

label image label image

Tasting Notes

100% Nebbiolo from Cascine Drago in Alba, aged in Slavonian oak barrels for approximately 12 months.

Ruby red in color, Poderi Colla Nebbiolo has a complex nose with notes of plum, red berry, dried rose, and violet. It is full-bodied on the palate with prominent, well-structured tannins. Over time this wine will develop outstanding complexity. It can be enjoyed throughout the entire meal, but it is ideal with pasta dishes with meat sauces and most meat-based main courses.

A picture of Bacchus is represented on the label.
