Cascine Drago, at the foot of the prestigious homonymous Bricco hill.

Located on the Bricco del Drago hill in San Rocco Seno d’Elvio di Alba, it is the place where we receive visitors, have our offices. It also houses the Degiacomi Museum: an interesting collection of tools used for agricultural, vineyard and cellar work. Visitors can see original 19th-century machinery to produce Metodo Classico sparkling wine used by Pietro Colla (Beppe and Tino’s father) until the 1970s.

Why Dragon?

Land of Dolcetto, Nebbiolo, Pinot Noir and Rhine Riesling.

Alongside the production of local wines such as Dolcetto and Nebbiolo d’Alba we can find Pinot Noir Campo Romano. In 1969 Tino Colla went to Burgundy to study and work. When he came back, his family friend Luciano Degiacomi, wanted to create a Pinot Nero vineyard on the Bricco del Drago estate, which then became property of Colla family.

This is where the first 'Super Table Wine' Bricco del Drago is made.

It has been produced since the 1969 vintage. 

The soil and microclimate in this vineyard give Dolcetto an incredible complexity and structure. For this reason, Dr. Luciano Degiacomi and Beppe Colla chose to enrich Dolcetto by adding a little percentage of Nebbiolo and to age the wine in wood. The result has been an intense, elegant and pleasant wine that has extraordinary longevity.

Tenuta Roncaglia, in one of Barbaresco's luckiest locations.

Located in Barbaresco, which has always been considered one of the best areas to cultivate Nebbiolo for Barbaresco, the total surface is 13 hectares, 8 of which are vineyards.

The name Roncaglie originated from the Latin word ‘Roncaleis’ (former Roman site, meaning ‘uphill road’). In the vineyard, we grow Nebbiolo da Barbaresco (crü Roncaglie) and Barbera, with a small vineyard of Rhine Riesling. Altitude between 240 and 280 m a.s.l., with mainly south, south-west exposure.

One of the most important areas of Barbaresco village.

Alessandro Masnaghetti wrote about Tenuta Roncaglia in his Carta dei Cru del Barbaresco in 1994: “…the site of Roncaglie is one of the best among those that you can find on the hillside leading from Roccalini up to Treiso…”. And Daniel Thomases, in Wine Spectator, January 1995: ‘Roncaglie is recognised as one of the best positions in the whole Barbaresco area’.

Dardi le Rose, in Bussia Soprana, the first Barolo cru .

Discover our story
...but which Bussia?

In 1961, for the first time, on the initiative of producers Vietti, Colla and Bartolo Mascarello, the name of the area where the grapes were grown appeared on the wine labels.

 

This vineyard now represents the constant quest for quality Beppe Colla devoted his life to: in 1961, he was the first in Langa to write the toponym ‘Bussia’ on the label, triggering the enhancement of crus.

On the top of the Madonna di Como hill, in the municipality of Alba, right in front of Bricco del Drago. A hectare and a half cultivated with Barbera, at an altitude of 400/430 metres, in a panoramic position above the large, modern underground cellar.
