Wine list

Bel Colle Roero Arneis DOCG

2022

This vine is a found all over the Roero but also on the hills on the right bank of the Tanaro. It is extremely vigorous, with strong, straight shoots. Fertile and productive, the grapes ripen in late September. The bunch is medium to small in size, with a pyramid or cylindrical shape with one or two obvious wings. Smooth with fruit and flower notes with good acidity.

Bel Colle Langhe Nebbiolo DOC

2023

A wine produced with the same named Langa vine; it is to be preferably consumed when it is young. It has a brilliant red color, the fragrance is characteristic, intense, delicate, with violet and raspberry scents. It shows floral aromas with hints of ripe fruit (raspberry, plum and cherry). On the palate, clear and pervasive, with a slightly dry and pleasantly fruity finish.

Bel Colle Pelaverga DOC

2022
2023

Ignored for generations, Verduno’s Pelaverga was rediscovered by a group of producers during the 1970s. Today, it is a much-appreciated wine possessing as it does some highly original characteristics and a lovely spicy aroma. The grapes are particularly crunchy and tasty when eaten raw. On the nose, the bouquet brings the typical notes of red fruits, plums and cherries, and spices, such as pepper. On the palate, it is delicate, velvety and well-balanced with its fresh acidity.

Bel Colle Barbera D’ Alba DOC

2022

The Alba viticultural area covers both the town of Alba and the surrounding Langhe hills, and overlaps with those of Piedmont's two most famous red wines – Barolo and Barbaresco. All around Alba, are the kind of rolling hills which have come to symbolize the Piedmontese landscape. Very fruity on the palate, with fine acidity and medium body.

Bel Colle Barbaresco DOCG Convivio

2020

The tiny Barbaresco district includes the four villages of Barbaresco, Neive, Treiso and San Rocco. Barbaresco is made from 100% Nebbiolo grapes, grown in the DOCG Barbaresco’s district. Grapes are grown from 200 to 400 meters above sea level (600 to 1300 feet) on steep, sunny facing hills. On the nose, the bouquet brings the typical notes of red fruits, plums and cherries. On the palate, it is delicate, velvety and well-balanced with its fresh acidity.

Bel Colle Barbaresco DOCG Pajore

2019

A Barbaresco Geographical Mention, it is one of the appellation's most renowned crus. It enjoys a well-established reputation thanks in part to the cult wines of Giovanni Moresco (now almost unobtainable), who first vinified it in purity in 1967. The rows have a very steep, almost terraced layout that enhances the excellent south, southwest exposure. Soils, elevations and exposure give Barbaresco of absolute class, classic and elegant structure, well delineated and deeply balanced. On the nose, the bouquet brings the typical notes of red fruits, plums and cherries. On the palate, it is delicate, velvety and well-balanced with its fresh acidity.

Bel Colle Barolo DOCG Simposio

2019

Only recently included among Bel Colle's cultivation plots, Bussia is the most famous vineyard in Monforte d'Alba, a true icon of Barolo whose best characteristics it represents. An area of absolute value that Bel Colle has the honor of cultivating in one of its highest portions, near the village of the same name, with excellent south-southwest exposure. Intense garnet red, ample and elegant bouquet delicately spiced, with hints of flowers and small red fruits. On the palate, an opulent structure buoyed by soft tannins, overlaid with ripe fruit and liquorice. Extraordinary ageing capacity.

Bel Colle Barolo DOCG Monvigliero

2019

Monvigliero has always been considered the "Grand Cru" of the commune of Verduno, as well as one of the most prestigious vineyards of the entire appellation. A natural amphitheater facing southwest characterized by a particularly dry climate and light, loose soils that push the vines to give their best. From Monvigliero come iconic Barolos for finesse and elegance that, while not renouncing a hint of austerity, prove to be true sons of the Verduno lands thanks to one of the widest and most complex aromatic ranges of the entire appellation, played in particular on notes of flowers and spices. On the nose, the bouquet brings the typical notes of red fruits, plums and cherries, and spices, such as pepper. On the palate, it is delicate, velvety and well-balanced with its fresh acidity.
