Why we love it
A fantastic and yet typical Barolo, simple but elegant, complex but approachable, a wine where the Nebbiolo shows what is capable of from a small producer. Aged for 24 months in big barrels, from Nebbiolo grapes grown in La Morra area, one of the most vocated in the Barolo commune, this Barolo has a complex floral and spicy notes on the nose, in the mouth is full, balanced, with a lively acidity and delicate tannins. To fully enjoy this wine, it is recommended to decant it
A wine perfect with roasted meat and game or just to be sipped over some mature cheese
The artisan who made it
Collina San Ponzio started a century ago, they had until Pietro Balocco, the third generation, took over, been selling their own wine and grape to some of the best Piedmont producers. Only with Pietro and now Federico is son, a very young and talented wine maker, have decided to bottle their own wines and are creating some of the most interesting Piedmont wines, clean, with a classic approach.
Their production is very limited, but their vineyards are scattered in some of the most vocated area, a lot of work for them, but great wines for us to enjoy. Their Nebbiolo vineyards used in the making of their Barolos, are located in La Morra, one of the best areas for Barolo. We love their wines and we love them, they are as passionate as we are.
