Poderi Colla Nebbiolo d'Alba 2011
Ruby-red wine. A complex nose with notes of plum, red berry, dried rose and violet. Its flavour is forthright, lip-smacking, with prominent, well-embedded tannins. Good length and persistence of flavour with fruity and spicy finish. A few years in the bottle will provide this wine with outstanding complexity. A wine of character for the whole meal, it is most at home with pasta dishes dressed with meat sauces and with meat-based main dishes.

Wine SpectatorA red with breadth and a lively spine of acidity driving cherry, licorice and savory flavors. This is still tight and firm, with a lingering aftertaste of salted licorice. Drink now through 2018.
