Antonio Galloni, Vinous Poderi "...Poderi Colla remains one of the under the radar gems in Piedmont. Specifically, the Barbaresco (and Barolo, too) is consistently outstanding."

Terroir Sense - Ian D'Agata "Poderi Colla is a beautiful hilltop winery located on the outskirts of the hamlet of Treiso, one of the four communes of the Barbaresco production zone. The estate is well-known for the many excellent wines it produces."

Terroir Sense - Ian D'Agata "The perfumed, delicate nose offers aromas of sour red fruits, flowers and spices, complicated by mineral notes. .... I loved this wine’s attractive light touch. Closes clean and juicy, with polished tannins but leaves behind hints of green nuances as well as of small red fruits and minerals."

Stephen Blandford, The Real Review "Garnet colour tending to brick. There's an appealing bouquet of toasty, vanillin notes over spiced plum with some fresh leather and tobacco, violet scents giving a top note. To taste, the wine is firmly structured, almost rustic, with a slight hollowness in the mid-palate accentuating the grippy, though ripe tannins, and savoury elements on the finish."

Terroir Sense - Ian D'Agata "The Dardi Le Rose estate vines are planted on soil that is roughly 63% loam, 20% sand, and 17% clay. The vines are at least 35-60 years old and though not all the rootstocks are known, there is some du Rupestris present which gives very small productions but ensures outstanding drought resistance, a matter of no small consequence given the times of climate change we live in. For this reason, my readers would be wise to look at and buy Colla’s wines in not just the great years, but in hot/dry vintages too, because this estate’s Nebbiolo vines usually suffer less than those of others in similar years."

Terroir Sense - Ian D'Agata "Intensely floral aromas of redcurrant, sour red cherry, mint and minerals are lifted by a top-note of blood orange. Juicy, sappy and savory on entry, then with strong soil tones in the middle, closing long with vibrant, sweet red cherry and mineral flavours. Finishes very fresh with smooth tannins and outstanding subtle length. A very pretty wine, this is tapered and precise, but it shut down in the glass and displayed an increasingly firmer tannic backbone, not to mention a building green note on the back end. (2019 vintage)

Terroir Sense - Ian D'Agata "Captivating nose offers red fruits, flowers, tobacco and minerals. Then seriously rich in extract, broad and full, with nuances of dark red cherry and incense emerging and gaining sweetness with air. The finish is firmly tannic, tactile and very long. At once very pretty and floral, but also very powerful, unlike most of Poderi Colla’s Barolo Bussia wines the 2017 is more saline and spicy than it is floral, with the brown spice note reminiscent of some Barolos from Brunate." (2017 vintage)

Antonio Galloni, Vinous "a wine of total finesse. Crushed flowers, sweet red berry fruit, mint and spice give the 2016 captivating inner perfume to match its translucent, mid-weight personality. Pliant, exquisitely layered and so incredibly inviting, the 2016 is going to be tempting early. It is a fabulous wine in every way" (2016 vintage)

Decanter "...recognising it as a superior Barolo site. Here, over 6ha of Nebbiolo are planted on the steep slope rich in calcareous marls. The 2016 is restrained, taut and slightly austere at the moment but exceptionally enduring and not lacking in grace. With a sinewy palate and firm, chalky tannins, there is ample fragrance and flavour to back this up. Raspberry, strawberry, cinnamon and cedar lead to a tangy pomegranate and sour cherry finish. Traditionally crafted and clean, with heaps of soul and intrigue." (2016 vintage)

James Suckling "Deeply complex and moody aromas with a wealth of dried roses and fresh red to black cherries, as well as terracotta and fragrant spices. The palate has a core of deliciously ripe darker cherries and plums with a long, seamless and finely focused finish." (2015 vintage)

Antonio Galloni, Vinous " ...one of the most intriguing wines of the vintage... I imagine the 2015 will always retain a slightly mature character in its aromas and flavours, but it also has the structure to develop beautifully in bottle for many years to come. This is an especially powerful edition of the Dardi Le Rose. I loved it." (2015 vintage)

Winemaker "Intense garnet red, wide and elegant bouquet delicately spiced with hints of flowers, small red fruits and goudron. Rich structure on the palate supported by soft tannins, enveloped in ripe fruit and liquorice. A 'majestic' traditional Nebbiolo with the power, harmony, and complexity of a great orchestra! Extraordinary ageing potential. It is perfect with red meat and furry game dishes, but also for very rich fish dishes, such as baked turbot, as well as for a fine cheese dinner."

Terroir Sense - Ian D'Agata "Poderi Colla's Dardi’s Barolos are much more perfumed and lighter in texture (I mean “lighter” in terms of a Monforte-lightness, which means hardly light at all, of course). In any case, the typical note of Dardi Barolos is a floral one (spicy too depending on the vintage’s growing season characteristics); these are wines that are never outwardly fruity, and their mouthfeel has a certain austerity and tannic presence (in this they do resemble those of Mondoca quite a bit). Colla’s holding is named Dardi Le Rose (also the name of the estate buildings) because of the large presence of roses peppered among the vines."

100% Nebbiolo

Antonio Galloni, Vinous Poderi "...Poderi Colla remains one of the under the radar gems in Piedmont. Specifically, the Barbaresco, and Barolo, too is consistently outstanding."

Poderi Colla is a highly regarded Italian, family owned winery with a rich history dating back to the 1700s. The winery is known for its dedication to crafting wines that reflect the unique terroir of the Langhe region in Piedmont. The winery was founded by the Colla family, who have produced wine for more than five generations. Brothers Tino and Beppe Colla brought Poderi Colla to international fame. Prominent figures in the winemaking world, the bothers studied winemaking in Burgundy and brought Pinot Noir cuttings back to Italy to propegate at their family's wine estate. Tino and Beppe Colla both played significant roles in elevating the reputation of Barolo and Barbaresco wines to international acclaim.

The Poderi Colla winery focuses on sustainable viticulture and traditional winemaking techniques, producing wines that showcase the authentic flavors of the grapes. Poderi Colla produces a range of wines, including Barolo, Barbaresco, Dolcetto, Nebbiolo, and other regional varieties. Their Barolo and Barbaresco wines are especially revered, and they often age them in large oak casks to allow the wines to develop complex and nuanced flavors over time.

Talk to us at Pop Up Wine and we'll gladly organise a tour of the Poderi Colla winery when you are next in Italy. We can arrange a tour of the vineyards, cellars, and tasting rooms where you will be able to learn about the winemaking process and sample Poderi Colla wines. Visiting the estate offers an opportunity to experience the beauty of the Langhe region while enjoying some of Italy's finest wines.

The Barolo wine region is one of the most prestigious and renowned wine-producing areas in Italy. It is located in the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy, specifically in the Cuneo province, and is considered the heartland of the Nebbiolo grape. Barolo is often referred to as the "King of Wines" due to its exceptional quality, complexity, and aging potential. Barolo wines are renowned for their complex and nuanced flavors. They often exhibit aromas of red fruits (such as cherry and raspberry), floral notes (rose and violet), and earthy undertones (tar, leather, and truffles). As the wine ages, these flavors evolve, and secondary characteristics like dried fruit, tobacco, and spice may develop.

Barolo and Barbaresco
Barolo shares some similarities with Barbaresco, another esteemed Nebbiolo-based wine produced in the Langhe region. Both wines come from the same grape variety and share similar winemaking techniques. However, Barolo is generally considered more powerful and robust, while Barbaresco is often perceived as more elegant and approachable.
