Beppe Colla is the historic Barolo figure who purchased Prunotto in the 1950s. Prunotto's holdings included a plot in Bussia's Dardi le Rose that he loved so much he produced from it one of Barolo's first-ever single-vineyard bottlings in 1961. Colla sold Prunotto in the 1980s, but he couldn't let go of Dardi so he purchased it from Prunotto for his own family domain. It is now the only Barolo his family produces.
The is classic Monforte d'Alba, on the one hand, with the intensity of its cherry fruit and its complex melange of herbs and spices. But it also has that fineness, that grandeur, that depth and that length that so attracted Colla to this site. It's an incredible wine that will age effortlessly for decades.

The Colla family has been making wine in Piedmont for hundreds of years. It’s no surprise, then, that their wines are decidedly traditional—Nebbiolo with elegant, chiseled edges.What is a surprise is that the estate was formed just 25 years ago, by Frederica Colla, the daughter of Barolo and Barbaresco superstar Beppe Colla. At Prunotto, Beppe was responsible for the gorgeous, hyper-traditional wines of the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s.Ardently traditional in his winemaking, Beppe refused to settle for the status quo; he was among the first to harness the unique terroirs of Piedmont by focusing on single vineyards. The practice of single-vineyard Barolo or Barbaresco is hardly revolutionary today, but it was virtually unheard of in the early ‘60s.
