100% Nebbiolo(Lampia subvariety 40% and Michet 60%)
Mineral and animal notes enrich its structure and layered complexity, characteristic of the “Bussia” cru; the ensemble is comparable to the intricate power of an orchestra.
Typically Nebbiolo in color, in its finest and fullest expression: intense, faceted ruby red with subtly lighter hues.
Three stars vintage considered average. 2003 was a hot year in the Piedmont however, some wonderful wines were still produced despite the setbacks. This wine is one of the better showings of 2003 that managed to gain strength in the vinification process.
Perhaps not the perfect vintage of 01, the 03 was still deemed excellent and this Poderi Colla effort is actually one of the best from the year in our opinion. Perfectly... MORE INFO
TCD Score: 90/100
With 90 points on 100 Barolo Bussia is a great Barolo in this vintage. With a very complex bouquet showing decided character and personality and a structured taste
In 1993, Tino Colla and niece Federica decided to combine forces, creating a new wine venture in the glorious tradition of the Alba and Langhe territory. The Collas’ loyalty to the roots of classic Piedmontese viniculture sprang from a family heritage going back generations. Tino and Federica thus founded Poderi Colla. This is made up of three distinct properties: Cascine Drago in Alba, heart of the Langhe; Tenuta Roncaglia, which takes its name from the historic Barbaresco cru; and Tenuta Dardi Le Rose, forming part of the renowned Barolo Bussia cru in Monforte. Three outstanding locations for three great categories: a near-complete spectrum of Alba winemaking. Beppe Colla, Federica’s father and Tino’s brother, supplies a fundamental contribution with his constant support and collaboration. He brings with him the unique, impassioned oenological experience of fifty years at the highest levels of Alba’s star reds.
