Costa della Sesia, Piedmont, Italy
Cantina Delsignore Spanna La Crotta is a beautiful food-friendly red wine from Piedmont made of 100% Nebbiolo. Attilio Delsignore founded Cantina Delsignore in 1960 after marrying into the Nervi family, longtime owners of vineyards in Gattinara. The denomination Coste della Sesia belongs to a special area at the beginning of Valsesia in the northwest of Piedmont, which is located on the right and left banks of the Sesia River. "Spanna" is the local name for Nebbiolo. Much about this wine is reminiscent of the more noble Gattinara: the ruby red color, the fine floral bouquet, the dry palate and the full-bodied flavor. Its lower alcohol degree and a shorter aging make it a simpler and more readily drinkable wine.
Cantina Delsignore Spanna La Crotta is an ideal match for salami, young or aged cheeses, risotto and red meats. Enjoy over the next 5-6 years.
