Antoniolo's Gattinara Riserva is macerated with indigenous yeasts for 14-16 days and subsequently aged in large oak barrels for 18-30 months, and then aged in the bottle for 12 months.
The Antoniolo winery was born in 1948, in Gattinara, by the hand of Mario Antoniolo, then taken over in 1980 by his daughter Rosanna and finally by his nephews Alberto and Lorella. The secret of the excellence of this company is the great love and respect that the Antoniolo family has for their land, in fact they always try to use simple and minimally invasive methods, putting respect for nature and its biodiversity first.
