Nebbiolo is the noblest grape variety in Piedmont but it is also the most demanding in fact, being late ripening, it requires warm and sunny exposures and loose and well-drained soils; moreover, it requires particular attention in the management of the foliage and of the production which must always be contained in order to facilitate and anticipate ripening as much as possible; from the organoleptic point of view it has the following characteristics.
Pairings: thanks to its personality, it goes well with savory first courses and red meat and game dishes as well as aged cheeses.
Poderi "La Collina" does not escape tradition and is intimately linked to its roots, deeply anchored to the surrounding environment which is part of everything and everyone.
The Second World War was raging. Gabriele was at the front: Africa, Greece, Albania; war and imprisonment took him to lands as distant as they were different from his own. Life was also bad for those who stayed at home.
Margherita Olocco, mother of Piergiorgio, survived the difficulties of the war, thanks also to the many sacrifices of Maria that indelibly marked her childhood. Married Virginio, they ran their farmhouse, as was the custom in the fifties and sixties: buying grapes and wines, marketing and laying the foundations of today's business.
When Piergiorgio succeeded his parents at the beginning of the eighties, he decided to overturn the production philosophy and become a winemaker in its entirety.
Quality above all and quality without compromising, this is the common thread of the Podere which today offers the whole range of vines and local wines with a controlled designation of origin. Quality is born in the vineyard, between method and unique lands, in the Castile Region, the historic vines of Dogliani
The characteristics of the soil and the right exposure to the sun make the vineyards of the farm, in the Castile Region, in the Doglianese hamlet of Pianezzo suitable for the production of important red wines, with great structure and generous body and fragrant, fresh and refined whites.
Wine is born from respect for the land. La Collina farm does not use synthetic herbicides and the reintegration of the organic substance is largely entrusted to green manure: (broad beans, peas, barley, corn) which brings back what has been removed to the ground.
The use of agriculture that integrates ancient knowledge and modern discoveries is fundamental in a management that is attentive to the environment and respect for human health.
