Bottle of Gattinara di Spanna, 1958 - Cantine Borgo
Bottle of Gattinara di Spanna, 1958 - Cantine Borgo.
Vintage wine is not to be considered as a product to be tasted, but as an emotion to give that brings with it the memories of a past time.
It is first and foremost a collector's work, with high antiques value and only later, if you are lucky, a wine to taste.
Gattinara di Spanna, like all vintage wines in general, is subject to a multitude of variables that condition aging with the passing of time so as not to guarantee its drinkability, the only way to understand if it is still drinkable is to uncork it.
Gattinara is a red wine with Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita status produced from Nebbiolo grapes grown in vineyards in the hills in the north of the province of Vercelli, northwest of Novara, and westward toward the Alps with the town of Gattinara near its center. It is one of a few regions in Italy that have been awarded DOCG status and shares that distinction in Piedmont with the Barolo and Barbaresco regions.
