One of the Alto Piemonte’s great virtues is the variety of soil types found among its seven communes, each of which marks the Nebbiolo—itself a profoundly articulate conduit of terroir—in distinctive ways. Bramaterra’s hard, red volcanic porphyry yields wines of penetrating minerality, sizzling acidity, and incredible, almost saline tension; these are lean and chiseled wines, even within the context of northern Piedmont Nebbiolo. Andrea Mosca’s Bramaterra comes from a sector of Brusnengo known as
Mesola, a zone whose praises can be found being sung in printed materials dating back to the early 19th century.

This is a blend of Nebbiolo (Spanna) (80%), Croatina (10%), Vespo-
lina (5%), Uva Rara (5%). Fermentation is done in large oak and the wine is aged in large neutral Slavonian oak botti for 24 months. Nebbiolo lovers, rejoice!
