Tenute Sella Orbello Coste della Sesia 2022


If you’ve delved into the world of Barolo and Barbaresco, then take a chance on this. Like the famous aforementioned regions, it’s predominantly Nebbiolo but in a very elegant, pure-fruited expression. The fruit profile is red berried, with an earthy undertone. While it is more approachable than Barolo generally, this is not without grainy, dry structure and we’d recommend decanting it. Vespolina, Croatina and a pinch of Cabernet make up the rest of the blend. 

Tucked up in upper Piemonte in northern Italy, away from the bright lights of Barolo and Barbaresco, Coste della Sesia is a tiny growing region focusing on varieties Nebbiolo, Vespolina and Croatina.  It’s here and in Lessona and Bramaterra that the Sella family have been winegrowing for 350 years. The estate remains in family hands, and dedicated to quality and sustainability.
