Lessona Colombera & Garella 2020

Tax included

From vineyards planted in the municipality of Lessona in northern Piedmont, at an elevation of about 350 meters above sea level, comes this wine composed of 100% Nebbiolo grapes. The vines have a southwest/southeast exposure and are trained by the classic guyot method.
The soils are characterized by an acid pH and consist mainly of marine sands.
The yield is around 30 quintals/hectare.

After selection in the vineyard, the grapes are destemmed and crushed. Fermentation takes place without temperature control, and pumping over and delestage are provided.
After malolactic fermentation, aging lasts 3 years. 24 months are devoted to aging in wood, usually 2nd or 3rd passage tonneaux are used. The last stage involves aging in cement tanks.

Colombera & Garella

The Colombera & Garella winery is located in northern Piedmont, in Masserano. The vineyards, totaling 9,5 hectares, are divided among the municipalities of Lessona, Masserano and Roasio. The most widely used grape varieties are native ones, such as Nebbiolo, Croatina and Nespolina, and the wines produced belong to three DOCs: Lessona DOC, Bramaterra DOC and Coste della Sesia DOC.

In the vineyard, only sustainable interventions that respect the environment and the land are used. In the cellar, too, the approach can be defined as non-interventionist and the wines evolve following their natural maturation.

The first signs of the birth of the Colombera & Garella winery came when, in 1992, Carlo and Michela bought Cascina Cottignano, in Masserano, with its vineyards. Carlo leaves his job to devote himself to viticulture.
In 2003 there is the first planting of a new vineyard near the farmhouse and, over the years, acquisitions grow with new vineyards in the municipalities of Roasio, Lessona...
In 2010 the Colombera & Garella project began, and in 2018 work began on the construction of the new winery.
