As Barolo and Barbaresco took center stage in the 20th century, the tiny, traditional region of Alto Piedmont slipped from it’s once prominent place in Italian wine. But this Nebbiolo is a love letter to Alto Piedmont. It’s aged in traditional botti (enormous old barrels) made entirely from Nebbiolo (which many winemakers of the area prefer to blend) and bears the variety’s local name, Spanna.
Farming both young & old vines organically, Andrea Mosca created NOAH in celebration of the Noah’s in her life, her husband & son. ‘ROSSONOAH’ is mineral driven with high-toned aromatics, looking at notes of zippy cranberry, pepper & straw in this seriously terrior driven cuvée.
Along with Gattinara and Ghemme, Bramaterra is arguably Alto Piemonte’s most lauded wine. At the NOAH estate, the blend is 80% Nebbiolo, 10% Croatina, 5% Vespolina, and 5% Uva Rara. This is hyper-regional wine with an exceptionally unique character unseen outside of Alto-Piemonte. Especially suited for lovers of all things Nebbiolo.
