Delicious, elegant. Tart cranberry, white truffle, iron, chalk. Not overly intellectual but enough to keep the smile on.

Benefitted from decanting and took about 20 more minutes to really open up but once it did there was beautiful fruit along with some funky earth and dried tobacco.

Gattinara is getting a ton of attention right now and it's easy to see why. This 06 is ride with tension, good minerality, crystal cherries and rose. It's at its peak right now as primary elements are still present but tannins resolved. Delicious with a stunning homemade risotto and paired with the company of wonderful friends.
