The 2019 Gattinara is bright effusive and exquisitely beautiful. Silky tannins and compelling inner perfume showcase the more delicate understated side of the appellation. Elegant and wonderfully precise the 2019 is a total knock out. Sadly production is down 35%. - By Antonio Galloni on November 2022 Roberto Conterno follows his 2018s with a set of 2019s that is equally compelling. The 2019s are perhaps a bit more austere and less forthcoming at this stage than the 2018s. That won't be an issue for readers who can exercise a bit of patience. The 2019s were vinified in wood uprights. Malolactic fermentations followed quickly as they often do at Nervi-Conterno. The wines spent about 32 months in oak prior to being bottled. All three 2019s were bottled at the same time but the crus see an extra year in bottle prior to being released.
