Coste Della Sesia
THE MAN IN THE LABEL: The most frequent question before open the bottle is: who is the man in the label? The man in the label is Enzo Penna, an historical winemaker of Cerreto, a small village near Cossato. We call him Uncle Enzo because he married the sister of my Grandmother. He spent all his life to grow Spanna on our hills. Spanna is the tipical name of Nebbiolo grown on our hills, on ancient marine sands that donate us minerality and finesse.
