TASTING NOTES

The Bel Colle winery was founded in 1974 on the Collina dei Castagni hill in Verduno, in the heart of Langhe. It was born out of the ideas and passion of brothers Franco and Carlo Pontiglione and Giuseppe Priola. This winery has always aimed to produce high-quality wines whilst respecting customs and traditional working methods. In 2015, it was acquired by the Bosio family, which updated the winery’s technology without turning its back on tradition: vinification in stainless steel and the ageing of noble red wines in large barrels of French and Slavonian oak. Barolo Monvigliero comes from one of the best subzones of Verduno, and can be considered not only the true "Grand Cru" of this municipality, but also the most fitting example of the elegance that is the hallmark of the best Barolos from this area. The vineyard is situated at about 300 metres above sea level on a natural west-facing amphitheatre. The soil is marly and rich in clay and limestone, giving the grapes great aromatic qualities and complexity. Nebbiolo grapes are harvested entirely by hand in order to preserve their tasting profile. Once they reach the winery, the must ferments in stainless steel barrels and finishes the ageing process after at least 2 years in large oak and chestnut barrels. In the glass, it displays a garnet red colour with orange reflections. The aroma is profuse, ethereal and persistent, and the fragrance of flowers and fruits blends with hints of spices and extracts. Dry, full, robust and austere on the palate, yet also velvety, balanced and very persistent. This is a wine that is ready to drink now, but can develop extraordinarily over time in terms of tasting, enhancing the spicy notes further still. This Piedmontese red wine is perfect for drinking over a family dinner, perhaps with red meat. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Bel Colle

In the beautiful setting of the Langhe, in Piedmont, lies the Bel Colle estate. Since 1974, its founders, the Pontignone brothers and their friend Giuseppe Priola, have aimed to bottle excellent wines, enhancing the tradition and uniqueness of the territory that hosts them. The Bel Colle vineyards extend in an area particularly suited to the production of Barolo, on a hill of chestnut trees. The plots are located between 300 and 400 metres above sea level, enjoying favourable exposure and microclimate that give the grapes an intense and persistent aroma. In 2015, the company was taken over by the Bosio family, who applied technological innovations to the production processes, while still respecting the values that have always been promoted by the Bel Colle winery. Large French oak barrels store the important reds for at least five years, before they are transferred to the bottle. Sipping Bel Colle wines one is enchanted by the garnet reflections and spicy yet delicate aroma, characteristics sought after by all lovers of Piedmontese red wines. Name and address of producer/distributor: Bel Colle - Via Castagni, 56, 12060 Verduno (CN). Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
