"Antoniolo remains a reference point for what northern Piedmont is all about.
I can't recommend these wines highly enough"
- Antonio Galloni

“For the last 25 years, Alberto Antoniolo has been the tireless creator of distinctive Gattinaras that have breathed new life into this designation and also the entire wine production. He is actively helped in managing the winery by his sister Lorella. The merit of their success, which groundwork began in 1948, lies clearly in their search for perfection in every label, but they are greatly helped by their vineyards, some of the best in the entire area, with Osso San Grato at the top.”    - Gambero Rosso

Gattinara Riserva Osso San Grato 2015
$80 per bottle
96 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2015 Gattinara Riserva Osso San Grato marries finesse with power in grand style. Rose petal, sage, mint, sweet pipe tobacco, licorice and dried flowers lend striking aromatic nuance to a Gattinara that is endowed with tons of personality. Another few years should help soften the tannins. It is such a pretty and expressive Gattinara. Even with quite a bit of air, the Osso San Grato remains bright, polished and utterly beguiling."

Gattinara Riserva San Francesco 2015
$60 per bottle
95 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2015 Gattinara Riserva San Francesco is superb. A wine of energy and pure power, the 2015 possesses magnificent depth that only grows over time. The flavors lean towards to the darker end of the spectrum, with layers of spice, orange zest, menthol and licorice woven into a core of black cherry/plum fruit. The 2015 is an intense wine, and yet it boasts quite a bit of detail as well. Time in the glass brings out its more refined qualities, while the long finish is a thing of beauty."
96 points Wine Spectator: " Piercing aromas of rose, cherry and strawberry greet the senses in this harmonious red, with a hint of truffle, while tar, iron and tobacco flavors add depth. This is well-structured and long on the dusty finish. Haunting. Drink now through 2040. 300 cases made, 100 cases imported."

Gattinara Riserva Le Castelle 2015
$59 per bottle
93 points Antonio Galloni: "Antoniolo’s 2015 Gattinara Riserva Le Castelle is laced with black cherry, plum, leather, spice, tobacco and incense, all of which bring out darker tonalities of Nebbiolo that hold considerable allure. The 2015 is deep and virile in style, and yet relatively soft contours (for a young Gattinara) give it quite a bit of appeal even in the early going."

Gattinara Riserva 2015
$40 per bottle
92 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2015 Gattinara Riserva is an absolutely gorgeous wine. Rich and pliant in the glass, the 2015 offers a striking interplay of rich fruit, bright acids and tannic spine. A whole range of floral and savory overtones arrive later. Although quite accessible today, the 2015 has the energy and verve to drink well for many years to come. More importantly, it is an especially superb wine considering it is the ‘entry-level’ Gattinara in this range. It is so impressive, especially considering its price."
