In the Alto Piemonte, we find thrilling expressions of Nebbiolo, yet one that we have truly come to love is Gattinara. The producer Antoniolo has shown us that Gattinara is capable of the same nuanced aromas, depths of flavor and longevity as its southern brethren. Antoniolo has been perfecting single-vineyard Gattinara from their estate in Alto Piemonte for decades.
