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 is one of my favorite all time wines. solid structure with firm, just-right tannins. a great bargain nebbiolo wine and the bottle is a cool shape that fits perfectly in the hand.
Excellent wine with full fruity nose, smooth texture, balanced tannins. Competes easily with other nebbiolo varieties
