Casa Vinicola Luigi Nervi & Figlio Gattinara Riserva Del Titolare (?) 1967 DOC


Had this again last night - my last bottle of three. All three have been great. This is the best Gattinara that I have had. Very intense, masculine version last night - the other bottles were softer and rounder. Firm and aggressive nose. Firm, acidic, dark cherries, sweet and menthol. Again, very virile wine. Sort of smacks you in the face. Intense nose. Intense palate. Very nice wine. Should last quite a while. Very similar to the Nervi '74 Gattinara I had recently which really rocked and was aggressively intense also.

Had this with elk and mushroom stew with sage dumplings (from LL Bean Game cookbook)

Thanks
