"Antoniolo's 2016 Gattinara Riserva is fabulous. A wine of stature and depth, the 2016 is seriously impressive right out of the gate. There's tremendous power and intensity, all in the vertical style that is the signature of the best wines here. Dark cherry, sage, mint, plum, spice, lavender and dried herbs open with a bit of coaxing. In a word: superb. Drink 2022-2036. (Mar 2022)"
"Cherry, licorice, eucalyptus and tar aromas and flavors signal this ripe red. Midpalate has a core of fruit before the finish ushers in the dusty tannins. A mineral element underlines it all. Best from 2024 through 2042. 1,500 cases made, 500 cases imported. (Nov 2021)"
