“RossoNoah”, Coste della Sesia Rosso
Comprising 50% young-vines Nebbiolo, 40% Croatina (70-year-old maggiorina-trained), and 10% Vespolina, it is a perfect rendering of the Alto Piemonte in miniature. One senses the strict mineral discipline of Bramaterra’s volcanic rock, the savory beam of high-tension-wire fruit, and the high-toned aromatics fostered by these northerly slopes, yet its texture is supple and approachable, its structure friendly rather than imposing. Andrea employs a relatively brief 10-day maceration without excessive extraction in order to preserve the wine’s sense of freshness, with vinification occurring in stainless steel and aging taking place in large Slavonian cask for one year. The wine deftly balances serious terroir articulation and the overall impression is one of lip-smacking resonance on the palate.
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
