Poderi Colla Bricco del Drago 2007



The reason behind this wine is the incredible complexity and structure with which this soil and the microclimat endow Dolcetto. This particular Dolcetto, with the addition of a small percentage of Nebbiolo bestowing greater finesse and elegance, and after a judiciously timed sojourn in wood, is a complex, pleasing wine of superb breed and extraordinary longevity.

Wine AdvocateColla's 2007 Bricco del Drago (Dolcetto, Nebbiolo) comes across as somewhat lean for the vintage. It does however possess excellent length and a track record for developing nicely in bottle. If the wine fleshes out a bit it will undoubtedly merit a higher score. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.

Wine SpectatorA rich, even dense, red, with cherry and earth flavors. It's just a little rustic on the finish, taking away from its freshness and zip. Dolcetto and Nebbiolo. Drink now through 2012. 1,000 cases made.
