Poderi Colla Bricco del Drago 2016 Langhe
An iconic blend of dolcetto and nebbiolo first released in 1969, this was a pathbreaking wine for this estate, and helped do for Piedmont what the Super Tuscans did further south in Chianti. Matured in Slavonian and French oak, this is a masterfully blended wine with lots of character. Blackberry, red cherry and plum fruit come together with coffee, bitter chocolate and some complex savoury notes, all within a robust structure that balances both abundant fruit with savoury dryness. A beautiful wine with the concentration and structure to mature over a decade or more.
