Antoniolo Gattinara Riserva DOCG 2016
This product is currently sold out.
Benchmark Gattinara from the region's top dog. Medium+ in body, this wine's structure is notable - pure acidity and a lattice of ultra fine tannin guide the pristine fruit - cherry, raspberry, fennel, spice, citrus skin - through to a precise and long finish. Long life ahead.
No reviews yet but below we have the 2015 write up, which is indicative. Year in, year out, this is benchmark Nebbiolo from Alto Piemonte.
"The 2015 Gattinara Riserva is an absolutely gorgeous wine. Rich and pliant in the glass, the 2015 offers a striking interplay of rich fruit, bright acids and tannic spine. A whole range of floral and savory overtones arrive later. Although quite accessible today, the 2015 has the energy and verve to drink well for many years to come. More importantly, it is an especially superb wine considering it is the ‘entry-level’ Gattinara in this range. It is so impressive, especially considering its price." Antonio Galloni, Vinous
