Travaglini Gattinara 03 Vendemmia Italian Red Piedmont 03 2004
Wine Tasting Notes Deep 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.
The Travaglini winegrowing company, based in the heart of the hills of the Gattinara region, has 55 ha used for wine production. There are 39 ha currently planted with vines and the rest is pending plantation. Both the “GATTINARA DOCG”, a highly structured wine for ageing, and a small part of the young wine known as “CINZIA”, are produced from the Nebbiolo grape variety (known locally as "Spanna".
This Gattinara from Travaglini comes from the excellent 2004 vintage and does not disappoint. Now turning brick red and smelling of Maraschino Cherries and woody mountain herbs, this wine enters the mouth with suave viscosity and balance. Time for further aging is evident with the medium tannins, but drinking well now.
