Cristiano Garella, formerly of the famedandnbsp;Tenuta Sella, his friend Giacomo Colombera, and Giacomo's father, Carlo, are turning out some of the most exciting wines we've tried fromandnbsp;Northern Piedmont. This is a diverse and special region where talented hands and motivated young producersandnbsp;have begun to unlock the potential of some fascinating and historic terroir. The Colombera andamp; Garella wines are impressive in their own right, but are especially attractive given the extreme quality that they display at such modest prices. This is 65% Nebbiolo, 20% Croatina andandnbsp;15% Vespolinaandnbsp;from 2ha of 60+ year old vines on rocky, clay soils. Dark fruits, earthy, meaty wine with a firm tannicandnbsp;grip that will allow this to age gracefully. Perfect on the table with braised meats and game.

2014 at Nostrana for Sunday supper on Jan 6, 2019. Initially typical young Nebbiolo but after a short time decanting the tannins softened but the fruit was restrained. Not as complex as some Alto Piemonte.
