Bordered by Lessona to the West and a chunk of Gattinara to the East, Bramaterra is scattered across 7 municipalities with ever changing soil compositions and significant temperature variations resulting in many vinous personalities. Monte Rosa towers above the appellation and the wines are thought to take many years to develop and to be very long lived.
