The best expression of the Piedmont region, this Nebbiolo is garnet-red in color, and shows an incredible variety of aromas due to the grape's natural characteristics and long aging period. Velvety, with great structure and big tannins, that smooth out during the aging process. Simposio refers to a meeting (blending) of grapes from different vineyards close to the winery. Vineyards are all located in the west side of the Barolo area (Verduno, La Morra and Novello).

James Suckling (91 Points):
"Red cherries and raspberries on the nose with some fresh herbs, followed through to a just over medium-bodied palate with fine, firm tannins, and a rather dry finish. Nice, fresh fruit, but not showing much length now. Should expand in two or three years in bottle. Try after 2023."

Wine Advocate (91 Points):
"Cherry cola, licorice and a touch of balsam herb define the bouquet of the 2017 Barolo Simposio. Like the other wines from Bel Colle, the aromatic intensity here is mild and elegant, but the "Symposium" delivers its keynote speech on the palate, where it shows a very fine, lean and silky texture…"

Wine Enthusiast (91 Points):
"Cedar and eucalyptus aromas mingle with a whiff of woodland berries. The linear, full-bodied palate features ripe cherry, star anise and rusted steel alongside firm tannins."

This notable winery came to be by three brothers in 1977, who established Bel Colle in Verduno, on the northwest edge of the Barolo DOCG. It was purchased in 2015 by Luca Bosio, an innovative young winemaker in Piedmont representing the third generation of his winemaking family. Luca seized the opportunity to work with such a prestigious property, which is known for producing single vineyard Barolo and Barbersco wines noted for their delicate, elegant, spicy and floral character.

Examples of outstanding single vineyard wines include the Barolo Monvigliero DOCG, which is grown in one of the best areas of Verduno with an average vine age of 50-years-old, producing a harmonious and complex wine. The Barbaresco Pajorè comes from a highly recognized 2.5 acre, south-facing single vineyard in the village of Barbaresco, creating a delicate, elegant wine.

It is widely known that Italy is home to the most indigenous varieties of grapes in the world. Bel Colle Winery honors that heritage and includes a separate, small vineyard planted to Pelaverga, a variety that is nearly extinct. The winery does indeed make a highly coveted wine from it, but in miniscule quantities.
