Sella makes wines from Lessona and Bramaterra. The soil in Bramaterra includes sand of volcanic origin and some decomposed porphyr but the sand and rock it's derived from accounts for the significant differences between the two wines. Both wines are made in a very traditional way and are aged in the Sella cellars in large, neutral wood, though some new oak has been used on some wines.
Excellent wine representing the Piedmont region. If you like Nebbiolo this is an exotic, dark-berried, spicy fruit choice.
External Reviews for Sella Bramaterra
The Sella winery has been family-owned since the early 1700s. Bramaterra (the name of both the wine and the vineyard) is a red blend: mostly old-vine Nebbiolo, with Vespolina and Croatina as well. Exotic, dark-berried, spicy fruit, with notes of rose petals, quinine and aniseed.
