Vineyards: 3 ha planted in 1967 on the banks of Sesia river on very shallow soils derived from the decomposition of the porphyry of mount Rosa, with very low pH which gives the classic mineral, iron ore, rusty profile of these wines

Commentary: A wine of marvellous distiction and elegance. Wonderful nose of violets, ripe red berries, showing mineral notes such as iron ore. Wet leather. The mouth is firm, tense, due to a lively acidity perfectly integrated; the texture is masterly with the classic Gattinara's tannins giving emphasis and dynamic to the palate and to the after taste. One of the best wine of our catalogue . Not to miss
