Winemaker Notes

100% Nebbiolo from the single vineyard ‘Le Castelle,’ located near Gattinara’s emblematic medieval tower. Aged in French oak barrique for 30 months followed by one year in bottle prior to release.

Critical Acclaim

WS 95
Wine Spectator
Linear in profile, taut and racy. The cherry, berry, mineral, tar and tobacco notes are backed by a vibrant structure. This is all about purity and refinement, with intensity driving this to a long aftertaste. Best from 2020 through 2036.

The small DOCG of Gattinara is located 100 miles north of the Barolo zone in the Alpine foothills close to Lago Maggiore. The soils of this region are more acidic than those of the Langhe, which, paired with the cooler climate and altitude, results in highly fragrant, elegant wines.

Few estates remain in this historic northerly zone, but tenacious Antoniolo, established in 1949, is surely the most dynamic; Antoniolo was the first producer in the DOCG to bottle cru wines, and is one of the only to bottle 100% Nebbiolo without blending in other varietals. Proprietress Rosanna Antoniolo owns over 14 hectares of vineyards in five plots, and son, Alberto and daughter, Lorella, third generation Antoniolos now supervise every stage of winemaking. The Osso San Grato, San Francesco and Castelle vineyards yield selections and the standard Gattinara while Nebbiolo Juvenia and the Bricco Lorella rose come from the Borelle and Valferana vineyards. The “Osso” yields an imposing wine with structure and longevity, while “San Francesco” is the most delicate of the trio. Partly barrique-aged “Castelle” is a forward wine with ripe, pleasing fruit and rose petal aromas. Aging requirements are the same as those for the Barolo DOCG (three years, at least two in wood.)
