A Piedmontese blend driven by Nebbiolo full of savory flavors of persimmon and salt. A young domaine only founded in 2010 and named for the winemakers's son. Bramaterra is a small appellation, just 28 hectares, defined by its red volcanic soil known as porphyry. The wines have a natural wildness, but are capable of aging due to their strong tannic structure.
From the mouth of the importer (Rosenthal):
"Vineyard holdings destined to be bottled as Bramaterra are located within the commune of Brusnengo, specifically within the sector known as Mesola, a site that has been praised for its quality in local viticultural guides date back to 1839. Within Mesola, the NOAH vines are found in four separate lieux-dits: Diana, Mussa Alto, Mussa Basso and Nuovo Impianto. Vineyard management is manual across the 2.5 hectares of holdings. Average age of the vines at this point is approximately 25 years. The grape composition is 80% Nebbiolo, 10% Croatina, 5% Vespolina and 5% Uva Rara. Fermentation takes place in large 80hl barrels, where the wine rests for a year before being racked into 27hl barrels for an additional 12 months before being bottled without filtration."
