One of the world's great wines.

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.

"The 2015 Gattinara Riserva Osso San Grato marries finesse with power in grand style. Rose petal, sage, mint, sweet pipe tobacco, licorice and dried flowers lend striking aromatic nuance to a Gattinara that is endowed with tons of personality. Another few years should help soften the tannins. It is such a pretty and expressive Gattinara. Even with quite a bit of air, the Osso San Grato remains bright, polished and utterly beguiling." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"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." - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
