NOAH Coste della Sesia Croatina 2011

Posted on Posted in Noah, Occasional Thoughts

a brief note about one of our newest wines…

NOAHTo our delight, this wine from young Andrea Mosca’s cellars in Brusnengo in the Alto Piemonte is developing nicely and shows, with a considerably higher degree than I anticipated, a true sense of terroir. In fact, this wine from Croatina is much more fine than it almost should be … a “minor” grape displaying an elegance and finish that is rare at this level. It is not at all fruity but rather quite linear with a muted but clear spice to its flavors; the tannins are strict but subtle leading to a refreshing “finale” … all in all a lovely way to further engage with the wide range of appellations and terroirs in the Alto Piemonte.NOAH Coste della Sesia Croatina 2011
