COLPO D’ALA MONFERRATO ROSSO DOC

Full bodied red wine. Merlot & Barbera blend, structured in French barriques for up to 24 months.

Colpo d’Ala is a “Super Piemontese” wine, a blend of highly selected Barbera and Merlot grapes from only a few blocks of our best vineyards. Colpo d’Ala is aged in French oak barrels and was created to reveal the great potential of this unique blend.

  1. Average Annual Production: 400 cases
  2. Alcohol: 13.5%-14.5% alc. by volume
  3. Suggested Serving Temperature: 18-20 °C / 65-68 °F

Aging Potential:

Colpo d’Ala is vinified and aged in oak barrels for up to 24 months to last for a minimum of 20 years since vintage, improving with time its bouquet and its elegant structure.

Food Pairing:

Match this elegant wine with almost any food. Light pasta dishes (such as Agnolotti Burro e Salvia, a delicacy from Monferrato), beef, pork, aged- and strong cheeses. This wine can also be appreciated alone, as a meditation wine.

Tasting notes:

  • Color: Deep ruby red, almost purple color with magenta rim.
  • Bouquet: Intense, showing immediate elegance, depth and aromatic complexity. Vanilla, toffee, sugar cookie dough and cinnamon on the nose. Hints of licorice and clove.
  • Palate: This wine is medium to full bodied. A velvety texture, with vanilla, blackberry and cassis. Molasses, butterscotch and chocolate and a white pepper finish. Once opened up, this wine reveals more mature fruits such as figs and dried plums.

Colpo d’Ala has balance, silk, persistence and an elegant structure. Total harmony of the senses.
