Bright medium-deep red with less brick than the entry-level Gattinara. Captivating aromas and flavors of almost liqueur-like red berries, violet, red rose and marzipan. Made in a sweet, supple style, with impressive concentration to the flavors. Finishes dense and juicy, with sophisticated but still youthful tannins. This comprises a selection of grapes coming from three of the estate's best vineyards, located in different sub-areas of Gattinara and at different altitudes.
