Antoniolo 'Osso San Grato' Gattinara DOCG 2013
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.
"Underbrush, leather, dark spice and menthol aromas shape the nose on this radiant red along with forest berry. The vibrant chiseled palate mirrors the nose, evoking wild strawberry, Marasca cherry, licorice and chopped mint. Firm polished tannins and bright acidity lend balance and tension. It's a stunning wine, loaded with class and finesse." 96 points - Kerrin O'Keefe - The Wine Advocate
