Poderi Colla Barbaresco Roncaglia 2010
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barbaresco|
This single-vineyard Barbaresco opens with classic Nebbiolo aromas of violet, rose, spice and berry. The palate shows bright cherry and white pepper flavors and notes of menthol and eucalyptus. This is still young and tightly wound, but should age wonderfully.
Base notes of plum and chocolate add breadth to this dense red, while cherry, tobacco and tea balance the upper range. Monolithic now, but the finish shows an equilibrium between the fruit and tannins. Best from 2017 through 2025. 2,500 cases made.
