  • Really nice structure and fruit. A bit more fruit showing than a typical Barolo. Dusty and dry but no strong mineral or must. For the price, I thought it was a very good value as well.

  • Popped and decanted for one hour before dinner. Stunning value here for a 10 year old nebbiolo. Traditionally styled and elegant yet densely layered with fruit, tar, and rose petal. Lacking the depth and concentration of a wine with a higher pedigree but I'm very happy drinking this any weekday. I'd say this one has just hit its window and should continue to improve for at least three years.

  • I generally find Gattinara a bit thin when compared to Barolo and Barbaresco. This bottle fits that m.o. Still a very pleasant wine. There is fruit, a little earthiness and a little leather and licorice. The acid level is not objectionable, but also not quite in balance with the rest of the wine. I found it much better with hearty red sauce food than drinking on its own.

  • this has a few more years to go before hitting its peak and is very nice, esp. for the price. I have one left, but wish I had more.

  • Happy to find a decently aged Nebbiolo on a shelf for a low price. This one has a pale, ruddy color, and right out of the bottle the nose is all tart red berries and mint leading to some really wonderful tertiary aromas, particularly truffle, once it got some air. For 29 bucks I'd say this was a wonderful opportunity to see what a bit of age can do to a proper Nebbiolo.

    On the palate the acidity was still quite fresh, but softened quickly with a gentle finish. Somewhat straightforward palate of red cherry and menthol, but lovely nonetheless. I wouldn't wait long on this vintage.
