2009 was a really fantastic, stand out vintage and now there is very little of this wine around. Soft and perfumed, the tannins having given way and leaving behind a beautifully delicate texture . Dried berry notes combined with leather, spice and a cured meat savouriness along with delicate floral notes showing off the utter complexity and what really great, aged Barolo is all about.

Established in 1993 by Tino Colla (brother of the legendry Beppe Colla) and his niece Federica, Poderi Colla is very much a family affair and continues the Colla family's three centuries of winemaking heritage in northern Italy. Tino and Federica believe in a non-interventionist approach to winemaking, to give each wine a unique expression of site and vintage, and they take sustainability and the environment as seriously as their wines. They produce wines from three outstanding sites in Alba and cover nearly the entire spectrum of Alba styles - using their own grapes from vineyards in Bricco del Drago, Tenuta Roncaglie (Barbaresco) and Tenuta Dardi le Rose (Barolo). The wines are balanced, rich and complex.

This very special wine is from a single vineyard called Dardi le Rose, on the hill of Bussia, a historically renowned site for great Barolo. The vines planted in 1985 are grown at 300 - 350 metres above sea level, with a southern /southwesterly exposure. The grapes are harvested mid-October.

Manual harvesting, destemming, crushing and maceration with the skins for 12/15 days at a maximum temperature of about 30 , with complete malolactic fermentation before winter. In spring it passes in oak barrels for a period between 24 and 28 months.

Perfect pairing with red meat dishes, furry game and very rich fish dishes, such as baked turbot.
