Travaglini Gattinara Piedmont 2005

Winemaker's 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.

External Reviews for Travaglini Gattinara Piedmont

External Review
10/24/2011

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
