Bramaterra Sella 2001

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

70% nebbiolo, 20% croatina, 10% vespolina from 45 year old vines. This is a very different wine with a bit of soapy florality on the nose, notes of clay, juniper and meat with lots of plum skin fruit, distinctly bigger, more powerful, and less penetrating on the nose. Chewy in the mouth with some stiff tannins, great acidity, notes of pear skin with the accompanying astringent note, plum skins again in the mouth with a note of bitter peach pit leading to a long juicy finish. A bit disjointed at this stage and showing much darker and earthier than the Lessona. With air the wine does really develops with notes of pine resin and roast cherry on the nose while relaxing and filling out in the mouth gaining a sense of lushness that is kept at bay with a vein of bitter chichory. The finish remains a bit short but this is very promising and will improve with 3-5 years of cellaring
