Wine maker notes
Gattinara d.o.c.g. is the King of Alto Piemonte. Itfills with astonishment those who try it for the first time, and it is always a marvelous habit for those who already love it. Gattinara is a 100% Nebbiolo wine produced only in the town of Gattinara, on the western side of the River Sesia, The grapes are handpicked in the first half of October and they are vinified in large cement tanks. The wine matures for at least 2 years in large oak barrels. It takes a few years in the bottle to fully develop its potential. The wine is austere and elegant, with a large and complex aroma, gentle and deep on the palate. Gattinara is a Nebbiolo with a vocation for long and very long aging.

The firm was established in the current form in 1937, but the Vallana family has a long tradition in the wine business dating back to the eighteenth century. The Vallana estate is located in Alto Piemonte (Northern Piedmont), in the North West of Italy. The soils here are Schuhe acidic, unlike the rest of Italy, and the climate is positively influenced by the beautiful mountains and lakes of the region. The combination of climate and soil make this a very unique terroir. Vallana makes red wines of incredible longevity from Spanna, the local name for Nebbiolo. Campi Raudii, Spanna, Boca and Gattinara are the four Vallana Nebbiolo-based wines. Vallana makes wine also from other native varieties, like the world-famous Barbera.
