Gran Riserva Sogno di Bacco Gattinara Nebbiolo 1971

Wow! Bought this weird large format (3.78L = 1 Gallon) Gattinara from Flatiron Wines. Thanks to Theo at La Compagnie for offering to open it with Port tongs. Opened and decanted with a large group of friends. Less sediment than you would expect or at least less than in many Travaglini. Worked our way through three bottles over the course of 60+ minutes, leaving two by the side to see how they evolved. Good fruit for a 46 year old wine, that started out with a bit of red and then evolved to more dark and more earth and mushroom came out too. — 7 years ago


Selezione Gattinara Nebbiolo 1985

I agree with Davis, this is pretty great. Still has structure and a fruit balance with the right amount of tannins. Go figure that we were at Acquerello when we had this. We have a more recent vintage if this that we're going to save for a decade or more. — 9 years ago

Coste della Sesia Nebbiolo 2013

Perfect with my garganelli--structured, rustic nose with a palate to match; barely overripe red fruits, earth, mushroom (but not too funky). May not be quaffable. It opens up. — 8 years ago
