About Il Chiosso 2014 Gattinara DOCG

Historically the “Chiosso”, in Northern Piedmont represents a vineyard that is bordered by a stone wall: the walls symbolizes the importance attached to a particular cru by winemakers for its propensity to create unique wines. Abstracting the same concept to create wines that excel in the quality vinified in the new winery in Gattinara.

Il Chiosso's vineyards are spread over the whole Northern Piedmont area, where the Sesia river marks the natural boundary between the provinces of Vercelli and Novara, and divides the hills of Gattinara D.O.C.G. and Ghemme D.O.C.G. The whole area is charachterized by lean soil, originated by deposits of erotion, carried downstream by the Monte Rosa glacier.And the hills of Gattinara vary in height between 918 and 1,476 feet above sea level. These are ideal conditions for growing Nebbiolo grapes.

In collaboration with the University of Milano, Il Chiosso uses the “Lotta Integrata” approach in the vineyards, eliminating the use of insecticides in favor of natural pest management. In the winery, the use of additives and preservatives is limited, and inert gases such as nitrogen and argon are used throughout the winemaking process in order to capture as much nuance from the Alto Piemonte terroir as possible.

This Gattinara DOCG is 100% Nebbiolo aged in French and Slavonian oak barrels for three years. The color is deep ruby red with garnet red shades. Intense notes of fresh fruit with an undertone of balsamic and spices, excellent  structure with soft, balanced tannins.
