"Garnet black color. Aromas of marinated white bean, jasmine tea, fruit punch, tobacco, and toast with pomegranate jelly with a lightly tannic, vibrant, dry medium body and a warming, interesting, medium-long cracked red peppercorn on focaccia finish with a suggestion of oak flavor. A fruity Barolo that will shine with food."
"The farm Collina San Ponzio (from the name of this hamlet which from Vergne overlooks La Morra), is housed since 1986 in the present cellar, an ample farmstead, surrounded by vineyards, renovated and expanded in 1999. It was founded by Pietro Balocco, who managed to actualize a long tradition of his family in the field of wine-making, an activity which dates back to the early twentieth century and afterwards administrated by his son Antonino Balocco, who was awarded the gold medal in 1978 for the centenary of its establishment. The management is now put into the hands of the Baloccos, who make wine from grapes which come from vineyards owned by the family, farmed with Nebbiolo grapes for Barolo wine, plants aged from five to fifty years, placed in the territory of Barolo and La Morra, in the Fossati vineyards. Wine production is a passion which starts with farming lands of good quality with love and knowledge, creates a synergy between the vineyard and the winemaker and continues with the wine-making which, thank to modern techniques, allows to protect and to value the typicality of our local vineyards. Since 1878 the Baloccos make wine in this way: they keep following the same philosophy and innovate while respecting the tradition."
