Antoniolo 'Osso San Grato' Gattinara Riserva DOCG 2017
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 liquorice. Polished tannins are present, lending serious definition and posture to the wine. Extremely rare.
Someone else's words on the prior vintage:
" The 2016 Gattinara Riserva Osso San Grato is magnificent. Elegant and weightless, with tremendous precision, the 2016 is all class. Rose petal, sweet red cherry, kirsch, mint, spice and orange peel give the 2016 its inner sweetness, while veins of tannin and bright acids lend shape. All this nervy, super-classic Gattinara needs is time. It's very clearly a special wine in the making. Osso San Grato is unquestionably one of the great wines of the world..." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous
