Product Description:

“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 was established in 1948 and was the first producer to bottle cru wines in the small DOCG of Gattinara. Located in the Alpine foothills, it is well over an hour’s drive north of Barolo and Barbaresco. The Antoniolo family owns over 14 hectares of vineyards in five plots, and brother and sister team Alberto and Lorella Antoniolo now supervise every stage of winemaking under the watchful eye of their pioneering mother, Rosanna.

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.) These wines are an excellent lower-priced, off-the-beaten alternative to Barolo or Barbaresco." - Importer
