Sella Casteltorto Coste Della Sesia 2009
Nebbiolo 60%, Croatina 35%, Vespolina 5%. Casteltorto is a red wine at the same time modern and deeply rooted. Modern because of its full and pure fruit, its intense colour, its rich body. Deeply rooted because of its local grape varieties, enhanced by the spicy and rusty nuances the Northern Piedmont best terroirs give. Alcohol 13.1%.
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.
