"Balance and expressiveness are the hallmarks of this red. Cherry, tar, menthol, mushroom and mineral flavors are backed by a solid structure as this plays out on the long, tobacco- and mineral-inflected finish. Drink now through 2030."
Vinous Reverie Notes
“The most dynamic winemaker [in Gattinara] is Rosanna Antoniolo with markedly improved single-vineyard wines…Rosanna Antoniolo is a driving force behind the recovery in Gattinara…” — Burton Anderson, The Wine Atlas of Italy
“Antoniolo’s bottles contain the best of Northern Piedmont’s heritage. Hard-boned and only apparently lean, they can survive the decades while making all their greatness immediately obvious.” – Gambero Rosso
"Antoniolo remains a reference point for what Nebbiolo in northern Piedmont is all about. I can’t recommend these wines highly enough." — Antonio Galloni
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.
