The production area falls within the municipality of Gattinara, in the province of Vercelli. Like other prestigious Piedmontese wines, Gattinara is also produced from Nebbiolo grapes. The name probably derives from "Catuli Ara" or Ara di Catullo. In fact, it seems that the city of Gattinara rises in the place where the Proconsul Lutatius Catulus sacrificed to the gods the war spoils of the Cimbri conquered in the surrounding area in 101 BC. Recent archaeological finds attest that wine has been produced in this area since Roman times. The Marquis of Gattinara, Cardinal Mercurino Arborio, Chancellor of Charles V and lover of the wine of his lands, dared to present this wine to the Court of the King of Spain. The Gattinara wine, in fact, links its name to this famous diplomat, enthusiastic admirer and indefatigable taster, who popularized its fame by offering it as an effective means of diplomatic negotiation.
