Colombera & Garella Coste della Sesia 2019
|Colombera & Garella
Here's a Nebbiolo blend etched by an extinct volcanic terroir of yellow porphyritic sand. 300 million years ago, a volcano created the raw material for the Coste della Sesia DOC and eight other geographically complex appellations, collectively known as Alto Piemonte. The addition of the varieties Croatina and Vespolina add resonance and spice to the wonder that is Nebbiolo, while the volcanic soils and more northerly latitude give wines of a particular elegance, perfume, and refreshment compared with the more powerful Nebbioli from Barolo and Barbaresco to the south.
