Giancarlo Travaglini Gattinara DOCG 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Advocate # 150 Dec 2003 Robert Parker 90 Drink 2003 - 2018 The dense purple-colored 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc) reveals a sweet perfume of black currants, an expansive, full-bodied palate, surprising elegance as well as accessibility, excellent purity, and a long, layered finish. It is a successful 2000 Cabernet to drink now and over the next 12-15 years.

Potpourri and spices on the nose. On the palette, plums, almost jammy and the tannins are little drying. Big fruity flavor and a good amount of tannin that will liky result in a very nice bottle of wine in a few years but I feel there's a lack of acidity here that may take away fromt his bottles life span. however, with all that said, a great bottle for the price.

    A deep pomegranate red wine with delicate fragrances of violet and rose on the nose. The palate is mouth filling with red-fruit flavors of raspberry and cherry and hints of licorice and vanilla. Full-bodied with soft, silky tannins, the wine has a long, smooth finish. Total maturation time is 3 years.

    Wine Tasting NotesDeep ruby-red with garnet reflections. Charming and structured bouquet recalling red fruit, blackberry, plum and liquorice with hints of vanilla, cream and leather. Full-bodied, dry and deep flavor with a fruity accent underlined by a slight sapidity. Long and persistent aftertaste.
