Gattinara, Piemonte

Mauro Franchino, helped by his talented nephew Alberto Raviciotti, is producing distinctive Gattinara from 3 plots in some of the best vineyards in the appellation. 
100% Nebbiolo planted in the vineyards of Lurghe, Castelle and Guardia.  These vineyards offer very shallow, acidic soils derived from the decomposition of the porphyry of the alps. 
He crafts his wine in a very old cellar in the center of Gattinara, following traditional methods taught to him by his father. 
Mauro is a skilled artisan with a reverence for his land and its viticultural traditions and combines his experience in viticulture and winemaking along with a great palate to interpret the best from every vintage.
