In the 1990s, the choice was made to invest in the native grape varieties of the Langhe, Nebbiolo for Barolo and Barbaresco, Barbera and Dolcetto. But Bel Colle always had foresight on whites, giving ample space to Arneis, Roero’s princely variety, Favorita and Nascetta, a rare indigenous variety of Novello.
Under the leadership of Paolo Torchio, the winery’s style was distinguished by its ability to produce clean, highly elegant wines with an austere femininity and finesse that made them instantly recognizable.
Since 2015, Bel Colle has been owned by the Bosio family, which has relaunched the purchase and arrangement of the vineyards, focusing production on the highest quality expressions of the territory: Barolo, Barbaresco, Langhe Nebbiolo, Barbera d’Alba and Barbare d’Asti. At the same time, it relaunched quality work focused on native white wines, including Alta Langa, Piedmont’s iconic Metodo Classico.
