Poderi Colla Barbaresco Roncaglia 2004


SKU 05978


Characteristically Nebbiolo in color, i.e. intense ruby red with subtly lighter reflections that connoisseurs will recognize. Inviting and non-aggressive, its bouquet is extremely complex, with the variety's typical rose nuances as well as ample, layered spice, woodsy and berry sensations. On the palate it is very full-bodied while also elegant, almost feminine. Straightaway intense and pleasing, long and soft, with a finish of great finesse and appeal and firm, sweet tannins. This is a great wine to accompany the entire meal, albeit best with red meat and fowl.

Wine AdvocateThe 2004 Barbaresco Roncaglie, a medium ruby, reveals dark red cherries, violets, tar, grilled herbs, smoke and subtle earthiness with a perfumed, vibrant personality. Although it offers excellent length one can-t help thinking that an even higher level of quality should have been possible in a vintage of this pedigree. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2016.
