"Poderi Colla's 2013 Barbaresco Roncaglie is striking. Rich, deep and beautifully layered, the 2013 possesses striking depth and nuance throughout. This is one of the more powerful, structured 2013 Barbarescos readers will come across, so patience is key. Sweet tobacco, exotic spices, dried flowers and menthol give the wine an attractive upper register, but there is no shortage of structure or depth. The 2013 should be terrific with another few years in bottle."
"A “classic” Barbaresco that maintains the underlying elegance of the Roncaglie cru: it is full, pervasive and intense on the palate. A lovely wine with a strong personality and a very long, final velvet tannin sensation with great ageing potential. Roncaglie is a charming wine, both elegant and appealing, with velvety spice notes on the nose and palate and with a long finish. Excellent ageing potential.
Located in Località Roncaglie (which gives it its name) in Barbaresco, traditionally regarded as the best areas for producing Nebbiolo da Barbaresco, it covers a total of 13 hectares, 8 hectares planted with vines. The name Roncaglia derives from the Latin "Roncaleis" (a former Roman settlement, meaning "steep road.") The vines are grown at Nebbiolo da Barbaresco (cru Roncaglie) and Barbera. Altitude 240-280 meters, mainly South and Southwest facing. -Winery
