The Colline Novaresi DOC sits in the steep, wooded Alpine foothills around the of villages Boca, Ghemme, and Novara. At 300-400 meters above sea level, the nebbiolo grown here has distinctly different personality from its brethren of the southern Piedmont. Francesca Castaldi grew up surrounded by winemakers, and returned to the region to open her own estate in 1997, after a decade of working in the finance industry. Today she farms four hectares of vines in and around the village of Briona. This bottling is 100% spanna (nebbiolo) fermented and aged in stainless steel with a short 5 day maceration on the skins. Tannic but bright, with structure balanced by fresh cherry fruit, this is a perfect red to have alongside a charcuterie plate or firmer mountain-style cheeses.
