The Gattinara Riserva is made only in the best vintages. A careful selection of grapes is harvested in the beggining of October. The grapes are crushed and then left to macerate on the skins for around 15 days before fermentation in stainless steel at a controlled temperature. The wine is aged on Slovenian oak for two years and then spends a year in bottle pre release.
Deep garnet ruby-red color, it is a full and harmonic wine, the bouquet verges on dried fruit, violet, blackberry, raspberry with hints of spices coming form the barrels. Deep, dry and full-bodied taste, long and lingering with the correct degree of tannin.
You can serve this wine with all courses, with strong first courses, red meat, game and seasoned cheese as well.
