NOAH 'Rossonoah' Coste della Sesia, Italy 2019
Andre Mosca left his career as an architect to purchase three hectares of vines in the heart of the Bramaterra appellation, within the Alto Piemonte. Andrea and his wife Giovanna Pepe Diaz, believe in the importance of a holistic approach in the vineyard with a firm organic bias. This is a really fabulous introduction to the other side of Alto Piemonte, to grapes such as Croatina and Vespolina. Bright cherry & Italian herbs are bursting with flavor, while this wines medium weight really give it some presence. A terrific value.
