Torraccia del Piantavigna Gattinara
The unique characteristic of Gattinara is its complex soil of volcanic origin, rocky and porous. The Nebbiolo grape is well suited to these challenging conditions and the bunches of grapes from Gattinara are small and compact. This is an austere wine with firm tannins but masses of character and complexity.
Ruby red with golden edges, the nose is subtle and pleasant with hints of violets. The wine is dry and harmonious with a lightly tannic aftertaste.
Excellent with rich game meats and local traditional dishes. Perfect with aged cheeses such as bleu cheese.
