DESCRIPTION

Top wine produced by the Colombera & Garella estate and as expected the nose is very much in line with the other wines. Cherries and a hint of roses towards the end, but in this case with more depth and more complexity. Fantastic in the mouth with beautiful tannins and a pleasant touch of saltiness. Very persistent. Too bad it finishes at some point … 

PRODUCER

Colombera & Garella is a producer situated in the hills of Biella, in the Bramaterra, the northern part of Piedmont, the land of such precious and rare and little known wine.

All commenced when Carlo Colombera, the father of Giacomo, after having studied agriculture, started working for a rice company in the province of Vercelli until 1996. During this period he got enchanted by the region and in 1992 he purchased Cascina Cottignano in Masserano,  a farm surrounded by two hectares of vineyards.  Hand over hand Carlo took to the wine-making business and in 2000 the first bottles left the winery and Carlo began to devote himself full time to the production of wine. In 2010 his son James, after his graduation in Enology in Alba, gives life to the current company with his friend winemaker Cristiano Garella hence, Colombera & Garella.
