1964 Gatttinara Riserva, Umberto Fiero
1964 Gatttinara Riserva, Umberto Fiore
This bottle - from The Greatest Vintage Ever - needed a couple of hours to open up, and then it revealed a deep, fine nose with notes of dried strawberries, paint, wet earth, cranberries and mushrooms. A fine maturity. Very interesting.
The taste is multi layered and deep and not in any way dried out. There is lots of dried cherries, cold coffee, undergrowth and rose water on the palate. Long and fine. I wouldn´t keep any remaining bottles for more than 5+ years, but bottles like this, there is no hurry to drink.
