Colledilà is a cru that lies on a clayey-calcareous soil, the so-called "alberese", a geological formation among the most representative types of the denomination: very stony soil, rich in calcium carbonate and clay and poor in organic substance. Aged 18 months in 500-litre tonneaux, 30% new and 70% second-hand.
