In line with Gattinara, Bramaterra, and Lessona, Castellengo was once one of the most important villages of the Alto Piemonte. Historical documents demonstrate that Cascina Preziosa’s roots as a founding wine estate in Castellengo date back to the times of Napoleon. Owner Gianni Selva Bonino and Consultant Cristiano Garella have meticulously restored the estate vineyards to their former glory of the early 1900s. Gianni observes organic practices across all 3 hectares and manages his picturesque holdings of Nebbiolo and Vespolina with the utmost attention to detail. The Coste della Sesia Spanna is like a baby Barolo. Rich, complex, and dominated by fresh red and black fruits with delicate notes of wild berry preserves, licorice, and violet. A balsamic, mineral backbone this wine is a must grab.
