Poderi Colla 2016 Bricco del Drago Langhe Rosso, Piedmont
The Colla family is one of the most important wine growing families in Barolo and Barbaresco producing elegant, traditional style wines. This Langhe Rosso is a blend of 85% Dolcetto and 15% Nebbiolo. The Dolcetto grapes come from Barbaresco vineyards where they produce intense, boldly structured wine which is why they add a little Nebbiolo give the wine lift, aromatics and elegance. This wine is complex, deep and rich with black and dark red fruits and notes of spice and underbrush. The little bit of Nebbiolo adds just enough lift to keep it fresh and the age has smoothed out the tannins.
