GATTINARA DOCG

NEBBIOLO COSTE DELLA SESIA DOC

Since the fourth century A.C. the Celts (Lepontini) were growing the vineyards in our area, they were the first to use oak barrels for storing and aging wine; to them we dedicate this precious expression of the viticulture of the High Piedmont area. Our Nebbiolo remains in large oak barrels for 18 months. Ruby red colour with garnet reflexes, the bouquet is ample and mellow, pleasantly bitter and velvety on the palate.
