Old English rose, black cherry and forest strawberry aromas. Deep, full and fine crunchy Nebbiolo fruit, intricate red berry, orange peel and floral nuance. Tannins are fine and will ensure a long life.
This, the ‘Gattinara Classico’ is taken from all the sites, Osso San Grato, Le Castelle and San Francesco. It is the benchmark Gattinara with forward fruit that has the ability to age over decades.
The vines are picked by hand, the grapes sorted before a spontaneous fermentation in concrete tanks. The wine is aged for three years in botti (20hl) made from both Slavonian and French oak.
