    January 1, 2021 - Probably one of the best Gattinara I had so far. Delicate bouquet of cherries, a whiff of vanilla and some rose pedals. Not as intense as some Nebbiolos from the Langhe, but quite pure and delicious with a medium body and very fine grained tannins. This is quite a beautiful Nebbiolo opening the doors for those almost forgotten wine growing regions of northern Piedmont. Should develop further complexity with another decade of bottle age.

    December 19, 2020 - Very pretty color and the nose to match. Medium expressive nose displaying delicate sweet red fruit, strawberry and raspberry water, rose, a hint of sweet spices and mineral. Medium concentrated, finely layered subtle red fruit, silky and fluid, medium acidity and mineral, and a medium to long pretty red fruit driven finish with rose at the end. Very pretty but not a hearty cold winter wine.

    December 12, 2020 - Somewhat shut down. Showing more weight but less fruit. Color darker than other bottles. Perhaps some variation. Opened slowly despite a generous decanting.

    December 8, 2020 - Very pale color with a nose of kirsch and macerated cherries. A bit rustic and chewy on the palate. Perhaps I'm biased by the label, but it seems to be trying to be more like a wine from the Langhe than a northern expression of Nebbiolo. That being said, it was still a good wine and a very young seeming one. It could very well gain in complexity in the coming years or the structure could eat away at the finely laced fruit. Given other 2016s I've tried so far, I can't help but think that given the resources this was a bit of a missed opportunity. I'll probably grab a few bottles to lay away and see what happens.

    December 6, 2020 - Sunday evening. Second time I rate this wine, I keep on stocking up cause I like it. We are in Singapore but we could be in Piemonte with this bottle simply accompanied with some olives, mozzarella and sweet tomatoes. Beautiful smoky nose, lots of cherries. Med+ acidity, full body, high alcohol, Med+ flavor intensity, Med+ finish, Chewy tannins. Perfectly balanced with cherry fruit, smoke, pepper, some minor mushroom and earth notes, really well structured. Still young but perfectly drinkable now. Excellent price quality ratio.
