Slightly more forward than the Molsino cuvee, the Valferana nonetheless deserves some cellaring before consumption. The shert precision and persistence of this wine is fascinating now, for serious wine nuts, but most folks will like this better in 5-10 years.
From Vinous: “The 2016 Gattinara Vigna Valferana is every bit as impressive from bottle as it was from cask. Rich and resonant, the 2016 is so supremely beautiful as it opens up in the glass. It is a wine of real breadth and textural expansiveness. Rose petal, mint, sweet dried cherry, tar, anise and orange peel are some of the nuances that emerge, but the Valferana is a wine to admire for its total sense of balance. In a word: Lights out. Make that two words. Drink 2024 - 2056"
