Tasting Notes for Producer Antoniolo – Vinous – Explore All Things Wine
This is a fabulous set of wines from Antoniolo. The 2008 Gattinaras have developed very nicely since I last tasted them. Over time, the wines have put on quite a bit of
flesh and are now both more fully formed and also more expressive of their respective sites than they were when first released. Antoniolo fans won’t find the 2009
straight Gattinara and Castelle, both the victims of devastating hail. The Osso San Grato and San Francesco make up for that to some degree with their superb class.
Readers won’t want to miss these gorgeous wines. The 2008s are a bit more delicate than the 2009s, but both vintages are quite beautiful at this reference-point estate
