Gattinara DOCG 2016 / 2017 (Nebbiolo) 6 x 75cl
The unique characteristic of Gattinara is its complex soil, of volcanic origin, rocky and porous. The hills are steep and difficult to cultivate and the vineyards are almost totally worked by hand. The Nebbiolo grape is well suited to these conditions. It likes to suffer and the bunches of grapes from Gattinara are small and compact. The wine made with 100% Nebbiolo grapes is an austere wine with strong tannins but masses of character and complexity.
