In 1999, after the satisfactions given by the vinification of L’attesa, I decided to interpret Gutturnio in my own way.
The result was a very complex wine and the presence of Croatina gave it an exaggerated tannin.
So I bought a shot of French oak of 7 hl by Gamba where I could refine my interpretation of the Piacenza tradition.
This very fresh and fruity wine gives its best after several years of aging in the bottle, as it has a tannicity given by the Croatina that takes a long time before softening.
For a good tasting it is advisable to uncork at least a couple of hours before serving.
