Vigneto Valferana Gattinara Riserva DOCG

Wine Type: Red Wine

Country: Italy

Region: Piemonte

Grapes: 100% Nebbiolo

Tasting Notes: Light nutty notes on the nose, dried flowers, hint of tobacco, ripe red fruits. Ripe and fairly juicy fruit on the palate, moderate oak, and dried floral traces. A lively wine with well integrated tannins, with notes of cocoa, peppery spices, and herbs on the finish. Full-bodied and complex.

Food Pairings: Rich red meat dishes, pasta in red or meat sauce, mature cheeses, and Italian cuisine of all kinds.

Decanter: ”A concentrated wine with suave sophistication. Rich red fruits show highlights of green olive, crushed tobacco, and violets. The tannins are dry and refined and provide some imposing assertiveness. Great aging potential for this slightly rustic and vigorous wine.”

95 points, Decanter (2013)
