    Tenute Sella is located at the foot of the Alps of Biella, in Northern Piedmont. Purchased in 1671 by Comino Sella, for 350 years the family-owned property has been cultivated by generations of the Sella family. Here in Alto-Piemonte, they craft beautiful, ethereal expressions of Nebbiolo-based wines, which are exceptionally age-worthy.

    Today Tenute Sella is made up of 23 hectares of vineyard land in the Piemonte DOC, with a total production of approximately 75,000 bottles per year. Their first vineyards were planted in Lessona, following which the family extended their estate to include vineyards in Bramaterra, and Coste della Sesia also. Re-establishing the importance of their terroir, with maximum respect for tradition is the estate’s philosophy. Each vineyard is hand-picked and vinified separately, using traditional production methods. Under the watchful eye of their dynamic young winemaker, Riccardo Giovannini, bringing new energy and a fresh outlook to the winery.

    Lessona and Bramaterra are their flagship wines. Nebbiolo forms the base of both these blends, Bramaterra with small amounts of Vespolina and Croatina. Bramaterra has porphyry soils with very high acidity (low pH). These wines represent more refined and fragrant examples of what Nebbiolo can deliver, with incredible minerality, compared to that of Barolo and Barbaresco where power and structure is the driving force.

    "Sella makes a wide range of wines that gives readers a chance to taste through a number of different interpretations of Lessona and Bramaterra. I have long admired these wines for their stylish classicism and beauty." Antonio Galloni, Vinous
