| 85 MORRELL FINE WINE AND SPIRITS V ISIT u S AT MORRELLWINE .c OM cALL 800.96.WINES (800.969.4637) ITA l Y : P I e D mo NT T oday, Poderi Colla remains true to traditionally- styled winemaking, with holdings in both Barolo and Barbaresco, producing a cru wine from each. The Dardi l e Rose optimizes his parcel from the Bussia vineyard. It is all at once structured, yet aromatic and giving, with a deceivingly soft texture on the palate which nearly masks its classic m onforte tannin. The spotlight is now firmly fixed on Poderi Colla, and it's only so long before this under-the-radar producer is elevated to the position they deserve among Barolo's elite. ✦ Poderi Colla Barolo Bussia d ardi Le Rose 2013 VM 96 » $64 "...A knock-out...wine of depth, pedigree and class…a regal wine in every way. Don't miss it." Antonio Galloni (1528087) T R adi T i ON a L TO TH e C OR e The Colla name has been synonymous with winemaking in the region for over three hundred years. The most well-known is Beppe Colla, who in the 1950s took over winemaking at the Prunotto cellars. His innovations opened the door to modern-day winemaking in Piedmont. He was one of the first to designate cru wines in the region, and he was always willing to experiment in the cellar. His nephew, Tino, worked alongside him in those cellars, and in the early nineties went on to create Poderi Colla.
