"3.5 Ha single vineyard, planted in 1960 and selected for its particular aromatic complexity and long aging potential. The vineyard is steep and cover crops are a must between rows to mitigate erosion. Soils of igneous and metamorphic rocks of granite, quartz, iron, and mineral sands from old glacial deposits. Fermented on the skins for 20 days, aged 18 months in new and old tonneaux- then another 18 months in 30 Hl cask." —winemaker
"The 2010 Gattinara San Francesco is the most accessible of the estate's three single-vineyard Gattinaras. Another intense, powerful wine, the San Francesco occasionally also show a more tender, welcoming side of its personality. Sweet tobacco, licorice and dried herbs all add nuance to the beautifully textured. There is a level of sweetness and openness to the San Francesco that the other wines don't offer, at least not today. Drinking window: 2017-2030." —Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"Mature black cherry, leather, grilled herb, ground pepper and balsamic notes are just some of the aromas and flavors of this stunning Nebbiolo. It's well balanced with bracing, noble tannins and bright acidity but it still needs time to come together. Drink 2018–2035." —Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
