Mauro Franchino Gattinara 2018


Description & Tasting Notes

Why this wine?

100% Nebbiolo, fermented in stainless steel with 20 days of maceration, and aged in large neutral old casks for 24 months. The first vintage released was 1967, and since then nothing has changed in the way this wine is made. A classic Gattinara, showing the unique character of Nebbiolo grown on volcanic soils under almost alpine conditions. Vibrant, tight and yet captivating in its complexity. 

Spanna is the local name for Nebbiolo that comes from the Gattinara zone of northwest Piedmont. Maura Franchino makes this storied red wine in small quantities. Hand-harvestedAccessible and elegant.
