Dolcetto d'Alba 'Pian Balbo'
This product is currently sold out.
Poderi Colla have a long history of high quality Dolcetto production. This bright and fruity food-friendly wine is from their Cascine Drago estate in Alba - the younger sibling to Bricco del Drago.
The Dolcetto grapes are sourced from Colla's Cascine Drago estate - where the average age of vines is 20 years, planted at around 350m altitude. The grapes are immediately destalked and crushed, and then macerated on the skins for 5-7 days. Malolactic fermentation is completed before winter sets in. The wine stabilises in stainless steel, and then rests for a few months in bottle.
A lovely nose of plum, cherry, violet, sweet spice and dried herbs. The palate has lots of fresh fruit flavours, including sour cherry and plum with refreshing acidity. The mouthfeel is crunchy and vibrant with a firm, dry and savoury finish - great served with food, perhaps lightly chilled.
A perfect match for Italian meat based pasta dishes, carpaccio of beef and lightly grilled meats.
