Gattinera is another name for Nebbiolo; this one is a good alternative to the more expensive Barolos of the same region.

Not sure if I would buy again. Acid was pronounced, not enough fruit. Had better for the money.

A great value alternative to pricey Barolos. Full bodied with lots of berry notes. Excellent pairing to meat prepared with a Barolo reduction.

I first had this at Eddie V's in Austin. I have been looking for it ever since. Thankfully, today I found it at Jimmy's Italian Market on Fitzhugh and Bryan in Dallas. This is a great wine. As described, it is A great alternative to a much pricier barolo.

Here's a light and tonic expression of Nebbiolo (in a specially designed curvy bottle) with pretty aromas of wild berries, moist earth and forest floor.
