James Suckling "Real typicity to this Italian riesling; it leads with fresh pineapple, Granny Smith apples, riverbed and hot pebbles. At once flavorful and quite edgy, this is a delicious, medium-bodied white to drink now." (2017 vintage)

James Suckling "Slightly smoky and toasty but with great citrus fruit, this dry riesling has a lot of appeal on the nose. Quite austere, lemony and crisp on the palate. Screaming out for a seafood platter." (2016 vintage)

James Suckling "A dense, rich white with sliced lemon, lime and minerals. Full body with good acidity and richness. Lovely texture and flavor." (2013 vintage)

Huon Hooke, The Real Review "A trace of free sulfur on nose, yet the colour is fairly developed. It's floral and definitely varietal, with lovely fruit and a Mosel-ish touch of sweetness. Soft mouthfeel, clean and harmonious. A lovely drink and a real surprise in Piedmont." (2010 vintage)

Winemaker "Straw yellow with greenish hues, elegant nose with mountain flowers, pervasive and ongoing minerality, citrus fullness. In the mouth acid sapidity, complexity, volume, and length. Potential positive evolution over time. For aperitifs and fish starters."

100% Riesling

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 Langhe is a prestigious winemaking region located in the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is renowned for its outstanding wines, picturesque landscapes, and rich culinary traditions. Here's some information about the Langhe winemaking region. The Langhe region experiences a continental climate with some Mediterranean influences from the nearby Ligurian Sea. The area benefits from a combination of factors such as sunlight exposure, altitude, and soil composition, which create an ideal environment for growing high-quality grapes. The region's terroir is primarily composed of limestone, clay, and sandstone soils, which contribute to the unique flavors and characteristics of Langhe wines. The Langhe is famous for its production of red wines, with Nebbiolo, Barbera, and Dolcetto being the prominent grape varieties. Nebbiolo is the noble grape of the region and is responsible for producing some of Italy's most iconic wines, such as Barolo and Barbaresco. Barbera and Dolcetto are also widely planted and play significant roles in producing well-regarded wines, including Barbera d'Alba and Dolcetto d'Alba. Barolo and Barbaresco are the crown jewels of the Langhe region. Both wines are made from 100% Nebbiolo grapes and are renowned for their complexity, age-worthiness, and distinctive flavors. Barolo, often referred to as the "King of Wines," typically displays robust tannins and flavors of cherry, tar, and roses. Barbaresco, considered its slightly more delicate counterpart, is known for its elegance and finesse.

Alcohol: 12-13%

Rhine Riesling planted in the 1980s at Cascine Drago: fresh and citrusy in the first year, it later develops the classic complex aromas of grape variety, always with a fresh acidity, giving good ageing potential.

Riesling is a light-skinned, aromatic grape of German origin which is – if the majority of top wine critics are to be believed – the world's finest white wine grape variety. The Riesling vine holds a very different place in the wine world to such great grapes as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot or Chardonnay. While these immensely popular varieties have conquered every corner of the winegrowing world, Riesling is conspicuously absent from the core wine regions of France, Spain and Italy. Riesling's home is the regions that trace the middle Rhine and the lower Mosel, two of Europe's great wine rivers.
