100% Nebbiolo. Sitting on the western side of the Gattinara commune, Molsino, along with good altitude (350-420 metres), has arguably the best exposure, being predominately south due to its natural amphitheatre shape. Fermentation and maceration are essentially the same as the Gattinara but for an additional 5-6 days. Oak maturation for both single crus is a little over 4 years, with an additional 12 months in cement vats before release. Chubbier, with a greater depth of dark choc/raisin fruit than Valferana, yet still tensile and focused. History would tell us that this is the cru for long term cellaring. In saying that, with a decent amount of airing and a decant, it shows its power and potential.
