Noah

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.” A view that we very much share!


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.

The Bramaterra DOC is a relatively small appellation in Piedmont with the ability nevertheless to produce outstanding wines. Nebbiolo dominates the blends but the DOC allows for flexibility in small percentages of other varietals. Noah’s Bramaterra is comprised of 70% Nebbiolo, 20% Croatina and 10% Vespolina and is a beautifully balanced wine with flavours of cassis, cherries, wild strawberries, white truffle, rose water and orange marmalade and blending together seamlessly, followed by a wonderfully firm and mineral finish.

Producer Fact SheetDetails

“The 2018 Rosso, a blend of Nebbiolo, Croatina and Vespolina, is a total knock-out and also a fabulous introduction to these wines. Sweet red cherry, blood orange, mint, spice and star anise are all beautifully lifted. Translucent and exotic, this deceptively mid-weight red blend packs quite a bit of punch. The 2018 is a wine that captures all the sensuality and allure that make Alto Piemonte wines so compelling.” 93 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous (September 2020)


“The 2015 Bramaterra is rich and explosive in the glass. Blood orange, chalk, mint, white pepper and macerated cherry are some of the many aromas and flavors that develop in the glass. There is something incredibly wild and untamed about the 2015 that is so incredibly enticing. In the glass, the 2015 is deep, powerful and built for the long-haul. It is a wine of tremendous character and breeding.” 95 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous (September 2020)
