The History and Significance of Poderi Colla Wines

Located on the picturesque Bricco del Drago hill in San Rocco Seno d’Elvio di Alba, Poderi Colla wines have a rich history and great significance in the world of winemaking. The estate not only serves as a welcoming space for visitors and houses the offices of Poderi Colla, but it is also home to the fascinating Degiacomi Museum. This museum showcases a remarkable collection of tools that were once used for agricultural, vineyard, and cellar work. Within its walls, visitors can explore the original 19th-century machinery that Pietro Colla, the father of Beppe and Tino, used to produce the Metodo Classico sparkling wine until the 1970s.

The Pinot Noir Campo Romano

In addition to producing renowned local wines like Dolcetto and Nebbiolo d’Alba, Poderi Colla is proud to offer the exceptional Pinot Noir Campo Romano. The journey of this wine began in 1969 when Tino Colla travelled to Burgundy to study and work. Upon his return, his family friend Luciano Degiacomi expressed his desire to create a Pinot Nero vineyard on the Bricco del Drago estate, which eventually became the property of the Colla family. Since its inception, the Pinot Noir Campo Romano has continued to captivate wine enthusiasts with its distinctive character, showcasing the fusion of Burgundian elegance and Piedmontese terroir.

The Enchanting Dolcetto from Poderi Colla

One of the standout offerings from Poderi Colla is their Dolcetto, which benefits from the unique soil and microclimate of their vineyards. The Bricco del Drago estate imparts an incredible complexity and structure to the Dolcetto, making it truly exceptional. To further enhance its qualities, Dr Luciano Degiacomi and Beppe Colla made the decision to incorporate a small percentage of Nebbiolo into the Dolcetto and age the wine in wood. The result is an intense, elegant, and pleasurable wine that boasts extraordinary longevity.

The Magnificent Roncaglie Vineyard

Situated in the esteemed Barbaresco region, the Roncaglie vineyard has long been recognized as one of the finest areas for cultivating Nebbiolo. With a total surface area of 13 hectares, including 8 hectares of vineyards, this vineyard holds great importance for Poderi Colla. The name "Roncaglie" originates from the Latin word 'Roncaleis,' which refers to a former Roman site and means 'uphill road.' Here, Nebbiolo da Barbaresco (crü Roncaglie) and Barbera thrive, complemented by a small vineyard of Rhine Riesling. The vineyard's altitude ranges between 240 and 280 meters above sea level, and its predominantly south and southwest exposure adds to the unique characteristics of the grapes.

A Testament to Quality and Innovation

For Poderi Colla, the Roncaglie vineyard represents a testament to Beppe Colla's lifelong dedication to quality winemaking. In 1961, Beppe Colla, along with producers Vietti and Bartolo Mascarello, took the groundbreaking step of including the name of the specific area where the grapes were grown on the wine labels. Beppe Colla was a pioneer in the Langhe region, proudly inscribing the toponym 'Bussia' on his labels, sparking the movement that celebrated the uniqueness of individual crus and their contribution to the world of wine.
