The Case For Wine presents a cru Barolo from a famous vineyard.
Location is everything in the hills of Barolo – Gianfranco Bovio crafts delicious Cru Barolo from the Gattera vineyard in La Morra. The Bovio wines come loaded with rich, generous Nebbiolo fruit, and a pure crystalline silky texture. Traditional treatment in the cellar—fermentation with native yeast and long aging in Slavonian oak casks keep the process delightfully old school.
2013 Bovio Barolo Gattera $68.95 per bottle – six packs
Aromas of roses, cedar and cherries follow through to a full body. Firm and silky tannins and a juicy finish. Turns smoky and meaty at the finish. Drink or hold.
A note on the excellent 2013 vintage in Barolo: “A cool growing season and late harvest produced gorgeous Barolos with striking aromatics, silky tannins, sculpted, vibrant fruit and mid-weight structures. Readers will find a number of thrilling, utterly captivating wines that speak to the pedigree and class that are the signatures of the best Barolo vintages” – Vinous Media
The Gattera Vineyard
Gattera, named for an enormous cedar that crowns its summit at about 300 meters, has a south to southwest alignment and produces a brooding, savoury style of Barolo, perfumed, finessed, almost Burgundian-like in their vivid cherry fruit expression.
