The small DOCG of Gattinara is located far north of the Barolo/Barbaresco zones in the Alpine foothills close to Lago Maggiore. The soils of this region are more acidic than those of the Langhe, which, paired with the cooler climate and altitude, results in highly fragrant, elegant wines at their best in hot years.
Antoniolo was the first producer in Gattinara to bottle single-vineyard crus. 'San Francesco' is the most delicate of their single-vineyard wines.
