Avondo 1958 Gattinara Riserva Speciale
With a few hours open, a delicate nose unfolds, carrying notes of rose petal, dried flowers, tart dried cherries, forest floor, and an umami, mushroomy character. The palate is intact, with a soft whisper of tannin, and still alive acidity. It's fascinating to experience a wine from Gattinara with this much age.
When opened a few hours beforehand, this wine showed notes of sour cherry, under-ripe raspberry and red forest fruit on the nose, along with some signs of development: undergrowth and dried mushroom. The palate carries a faint touch of oak spice, vanilla, and a hint of smoke.
