2016 Poderi Colla Barbaresco Roncaglie
Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “Like the Cigliuti, this is a little and serious Barbaresco that would make Sergio proud. It is another one of those small family run wineries in Piemonte that somehow remains under the radar, despite being guided by one of the regions founding fathers - which is fine by us. The traditionally-spirited Poderi Colla Roncaglie is an expression that will outlive many Barolo from this historic vintage in the making for Piedmont. The wine simply screams freshness and purity of fruit and is one of those wines that pulls you in by the nose hairs with the signature nuances of dried rose petals, tar and red fruit. These flavors are joined on the palate with cherries, citrus, spice, cedar, herbs, and minerals. This Barbaresco is classically built and rustic, expect to find tannic grip that wraps the teeth and packs a punch on the finish. The wine needs a little time to reveal itself and demands some food. In fact, the best results for this wine came after being open for 24 hours. This is for those that like classic Nebbiolo delivered with exceptional value. Kudos to Tina and Beppe Colla for this gem.” 8/2020

Special Price: $469.99

Classically structured, brooding, and powerful, the ’13 Sorì San Lorenzo is a towering expression of Nebbiolo. Pure red and blue fruits dance on a bed of fresh-cut herbs, potpourri, crushed rocks, tar and smoke. This is a finessed, gorgeous wine that unfurls on the palate with tantalizing precision as it builds to a lingering finish. The first of the crus to be bottled individually in 1967, Sorì San Lorenzo typically requires the most patience of the three Gaja cru bottlings, but its intense aromatics, velvety mouth-feel and sensuous, complex palate reward a wine-lover’s restraint. 2013 saw the bottling of Sorì San Lorenzo as a mono-varietal Nebbiolo, as Gaja omitted the Barbera component; the grapes for this wine ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel; then the wine ages for in a year each in barrique and botti before bottling. more info
