Smooth, full bodied
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.
External Reviews for Travaglini Gattinara
An elegant version, featuring licorice-tinged cherry, berry and earth flavors. Well-proportioned, with the supple texture playing off the light tannins on the finish. Best from 2014 through 2025. 16,500 cases made. -BS The 2007 Gattinara bursts from the glass with sweet red cherries, tobacco, incense and grilled herbs. There is an immediacy to the 2007 that is quite appealing. At the same time, the firm Nebbiolo tannins are present and serve to balance the wine's more overt leanings. I very much like the way the 2007 continues to open up in the glass. Overall this looks to be a tasty, early-drinking Gattinara from Travaglini. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017.
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.
Sweet floral aromatics emerge from the 2006 Gattinara. This deceptively medium-bodied wine shows good depth in its red fruit, but at times comes across as a touch fragile and fleeting. Nevertheless, it is an attractive, representative Gattinara well-suited for drinking over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018. ** Only 6 in Stock **
The 2005 Gattinara is a pretty, mid-weight Nebbiolo. Sweet cherries, tobacco, herbs and crushed flowers are some of the notes that emerge from this classy, refined red. The Gattinara is a somewhat fleeting, ethereal wine, but it has the freshness and firmness to age well for at least another decade. This entry-level Gattinara possesses tons of varietal character in a translucent, weightless expression that is typical of the appellation. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020. Displays very ripe fruit, with notes of dried red fruits and plum and hints of slightly green wood. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins. Theres a little too much wood, but this should come around nicely. Best after 2010. 15,000 cases made. -JS
