Gattinara, Piedmont, Italy
Cantina Delsignore Gattinara Il Putto is a beautiful older-vintage red wine from Piedmont made of 100% Nebbiolo. Attilio Delsignore founded Cantina Delsignore in 1960 after marrying into the Nervi family, longtime owners of vineyards in Gattinara. The denomination Coste della Sesia belongs to a special area at the beginning of Valsesia in the northwest of Piedmont, which is located on the right and left banks of the Sesia River. This wine is the fruit of Nebbiolo grapes from some of the finest vineyards nestling on the gentle slopes of Gattinara. Dense with complex aromas, the deep ruby hue enhances the harmonious flavor of violets and fruits. "Il Putto Vendemmiatore" picks up the main theme of the tile decoration on the fifteenth century facade of the Gattinara cathedral, symbolizing the role of the cultivation of grapes in this area since the early middle ages.
Delsignore Gattinara Il Putto is an ideal match for salami, aged cheeses, risotto and red meats. Enjoy over the next 6-8 years.
