Antoniolo Gattinara Riserva DOCG 2017
This product is currently sold out.
Benchmark Gattinara from the region's top dog. This incredible 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. Nebbiolo heaven.
We aren't really wine review/wine points people but here's what someone who tastes a lot said about the prior vintage:
"Antoniolo’s 2016 Gattinara Riserva is fabulous. A wine of stature and depth, the 2016 is seriously impressive right out of the gate. There’s tremendous power and intensity, all in the vertical style that is the signature of the best wines here. Dark cherry, sage, mint, plum, spice, lavender and dried herbs open with a bit of coaxing. In a word: superb." Antonio Galloni, Vinous
