Poderi Colla Barbaresco Roncaglia 2013
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barbaresco|
Here's a classic Nebbiolo that opens with aromas of ripe black-skinned fruit, baking spice, truffle and underbrush. The juicy, expressive palate doles out ripe Morello cherry, crushed raspberry, clove, white pepper and roasted herb while firm but refined tannins provide the backbone. Drink through 2023.
An elegant version, featuring aromas of rose, cherry, currant and anise. Tobacco and mineral elements chime in as this plays out on the palate. Solid yet balanced, with fine length. Best from 2018 through 2029. 2,500 cases made.
