Wine tasting advice

 Garnet red.
Bouquet of red fruits (blackcurrant, cherry, strawberry), undergrowth (truffle, earth) and peppery notes.
Round mouth, with incredible mineral freshness. Aftertaste of aromatic herbs (mint, etc.).

Vinification

Destemming and crushing. Fermentation in stainless steel vats and wooden barrels. The maceration time varies according to the grape variety: 30 days for Nebbiolo, 10 days for Croatina and Vespolina. Then, malolactic fermentation the following spring. Aged for 22 months in Slavonian oak barrels of 28hl and 14hl before bottling.

Terroir

The vineyard called Salero is located on a hill, on a mixed soil of rocks and porphyry sands, of volcanic origin. It gives the wine a more prominent and immediate minerality, almost saline, but still full of grace.

Le vigneron

Andrea Mosca and Giovanna are a couple of neo-wine growers in Upper Piedmont. The couple decided in 2010 (date of the birth of their son named…we let you guess!) to get closer to their passion for wine and gave birth to their second baby: the NOAH estate. Wanting to live their dream, they bought 4.5 hectares of vines: 3 hectares in Brusnengo and 1.5 hectares in Lessona, two areas with truly different terroirs.

Andrea and Giovanna have a holistic approach to winemaking. They are convinced that "wine is the harmonious encounter between man and nature" and are proud to promote this wine region which is still little known, even underestimated. But nature is not just about grapes, and the couple would like to go further, by offering a day of agritourism, to add a new dimension to the rediscovery of the heritage of their land.
