"Lessona 2016 is 95 % Nebbiolo and 5 % Vespolina, the vineyard is located in Lessona on a soil of ancient marine origin. Fermentation was in concrete with 34 days of maceration for the Nebbiolo grapes. After we blend the 2 varietes and we wait the spring for the natural malolactic. The wine aged for 2 years in a used barriques or used tonneaux." Wine details sent directly from Giacomo Colombera
In contrast to the 2016 Bramaterra, the Colombera & Garella 2016 'Pizzaguerra' Lessona is leaner, a touch brighter and lighter in fruit. Even the color is a truer red. The nose offers a spectrum of aromas: red licorice, strawberry, cherry, balsamic, and Autumnal notes of forest floor. Flavors of wild cherry and crushed black rocks make way for a finish of iron, mint, and clove. The tannic structure of this wine is more focused than that of the Bramattera, landing primarily on the tongue and gums, and the acidity of the Lessona is a bit more lively, coupled with the wine's additional notches of clean minerality.
