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. The Nebbiolo grapes that go into making Barolo Riserva 10 Anni come from two of the most important vineyards in the municipality of Verduno: Monvigliero and Boscatto. These are plots located between 300 and 400 metres above sea level composed mainly of clay and limestone. The resulting grapes are highly concentrated and rich in substances. Once the grapes from the two crus arrive at the winery, they are vinified separately and each individual lot is aged for 5 years in large wooden barrels. It is only after this time that the two wines are blended to make only one that ages for another 5 years in the barrel: the 10-Year Reserve. As you pour it into the glass, you are immediately struck by the colour: a garnet red with very bright brick red reflections. On the nose, the first notes to emerge are spicy hints of pepper, nutmeg, vanilla and tobacco. These are followed by more delicate floral hints of dried rosehip and violet, which then give way to fruit and slightly menthol notes. In the mouth it is a very elegant, dry, full-bodied, robust wine with an intriguing tannic texture, making it suitable for drinking now. An important Piedmontese red wine that is therefore perfectly suited to a rich Sunday lunch with friends or family, paired with red meat dishes. 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.
