Colombera & Garella is the collaboration of Cristiano Garella, the leader of the Alto (northern) Piemontese renaissance, with his long-time friend Giacomo Colombera and Giacomo’s father, Carlo, in Bramaterra, 15 km west of Gattinara. The tradition in Bramaterra is Nebbiolo-prominent blends, typically with Vespolina and Croatina. The wines are elegant, fresh, and unmanipulated, with supple tannins and perfect balance. This wine comes from the organically-farmed home vineyard (Cascina Cottignano), which has iron-rich, reddish-brown, sandy volcanic soils. 80% Nebbiolo, 10% Vespolina, 10% Croatina. 2-3 weeks of indigenous fermentation in concrete; two years of aging in 6200-liter Slavonian oak botti. 13% alcohol.
