“Dellamesola”, Coste della Sesia Rosso
“Dellamesola” is named after Andrea Mosca’s zone of Brusnengo, and is a letter-perfect exemplar of the specialness of his terroir in miniature. Comprising 80% Nebbiolo and 10% each Vespolina and Croatina from just outside the delimitation of the Bramaterra appellation, it spent one year in large Slavonian oak casks and was bottled with minimal sulfur. Open-knit yet still built around a core of pert acidity, “Dellamesola” delivers the volcanic thrust of Bramaterra on a friendlier and more immediately luscious frame, with lifted, vividly articulated dark red fruit and a subtle floral character.
Andrea Mosca abandoned his career as an architect nine years ago and acquired three hectares of vines in and around the village of Brusnengo, in the heart of the Bramaterra appellation. Christening his project NOAH, Andrea quickly set to producing thrillingly pure wines beginning with the 2011 vintage, and we have been by his side since the outset.Learn more
