Antoniolo 'Osso San Grato' Gattinara Riserva DOCG 2015
This product is currently sold out.
Osso San Grato is the finest vineyard in Gattinara and a monopole that is handled organically by the Antoniolo family, often yielding one of the World's finest Nebbiolo wines. Spontaneous, long fermentation is fuelled by indigenous yeasts and extraction is ever so gentle. Aromatically it offers an assortment of red forest fruits that are accompanied by mint, brown spices and licorice. Polished tannins are present, lending serious definition and posture to the wine. This example is all class and so complete - expect a very, very long life.
"Complex, brooding, deeply flavoured and firmly textured wine. Savoury with mushroom, undergrowth, old leather and dark cherry scents. Similar suggestions to taste with a tongue-grabbing ripple of dusty, firm tannin weaving through a sluice of sour cherry, amaro-like flavours and fresh pomegranate crunch. Pent up, quietly powerful but also lifted on a perfume in bouquet and palate that feels all dried and fresh alpine herbs. It’s got so much going on; a real feast for the senses."
