Noah is an exciting young winery based in the small town of Brusnengo, in the province of Biella in Northern Piedmont. It is the viticultural brainchild of Andrea Mosca and Giovanna Pepe Diaz who, in 2010, decided that  a career change was necessary in order to follow their passion for wine. The husband and wife team had a mutual yearning to live off the land and so, in a bid to change their lifestyle and that of their two children, they purchased 3.8 hectares of vineyard within the Bramaterra DOC. Andrea and Giovanna have a holistic approach to winemaking, they believe strongly that “wine is the harmonious meeting of man and nature.” 

The Noah vineyards sit between the two growing areas in Brusnengo - Mesola and Forte - and the grapes grown here can be made into the wines of Bramaterra DOC or Coste della Sesia DOC – Noah produces both. Noah’s production is led by Nebbiolo but there are parcels dedicated to Croatina, Vespolina and Uva Rara. 

Brusnengo sits upon volcanic, porphyry rock and there are great differences between the topsoil within the growing area. Here, the unique microclimate of cooling breezes and warming soils guarantees a slow and complete ripening of the all of the varieties and results in wines with full and complex flavours.

'This comes from sandy soil and has pale ruby colour with garnet highlights. The nose is extremely fragrant with dried hay, red cherries, cedar, later developing into the Nebbiolo-typical 'tar' aromas in the glass. On the palate it is full bodied and dry with finely structured, almost sandy but polished tannins. There is savoury baking spice, cured meat - this wine is extremely juicy with ripe berry fruit, finishing with white peach, and Mediterranean ethereal herbs. Super delicious and drinking extremely well!'Anja Breit, Philglas & Swiggot
