"Bramaterra 2017 is 80 % Nebbiolo, 10 % Vespolina, 10 % Croatina, the vineyard is located in Masserano on a volcanic brown soil. Fermentation was in concrete with 38 days of maceration for the Nebbiolo grapes. After we blend the 3 varietes and we wait the spring for the natural malolactic. The wine aged for 2 years in a botte 6000 L." Wine info sent directly from Giacomo Colombera

The Colombera & Garella 2016 'Cascina Cottignano' Bramaterra has a color of dark cherry. The nose has expressive, plump red fruits, like cherry and raspberry, along with a hint of flowery perfume. These aromas float above a distinctly savory character, which I found to be reminscent of fresh, dark-green seagrass - salty and rich, not bitter or vegetal. On the palate, the wine shows a medley of black and red berries, before a long, herbaceous finish. It has a ripe mouthfeel with lovely, tempered acidity, flashy stoniness, and a broad blanket of medium-level tannin. David Hatzopoulos
