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.

Gattinara Riserva D.O.C.G. 2004 - Tre Bicchieri, Gambero Rosso Guide to Italian Wines/ ... Travaglini's Gattinara Riserva '04 fully lives up to expectations. We had been waiting for an austere, classic debut vintage and here we have a wine that is all this and much more. Earthy to the core, spicy and generous, it never relinquishes its acid, crunchy fruit with lingering flavour and caressing tannic weave.

Gattinara Riserva 2001 - 91 Points , Wine Enthusiast/ Here's a beautifully aged expression of Nebbiolo with polished aromas of blackberry, cola and scented candle. Background aroms of pressed flowers and potpourri emerge after a few minutes in the glass and the wine evolves nicely in the mouth as well thanks to its silky tannins and natural acidity.

Gattinara Riserva D.O.C.G. 2005 - 92 Points, Wine Advocate/ The 2005 Gattinara Riserva possesses more depth, richness and sheer stuffing than the regular bottling. Incense, tar, wild cherries and herbs are some of the nuances that come to life in this powerful Gattinara. Another few years in bottle should allow the tannins to soften and the fruit to emerge with even greater authority. This is a lovely set of new releases from Travaglini, one of the benchmark producers in Gattinara. The wines seem to have acquired an additional level of finesse in recent years.

Gattinara Riserva 2004 - 90 Points , Wine Spectator/ Offers dried fruits such as prune and cherry, with cedar. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a soft, pretty texture. This has so much subtle fruit, with lovely caressing tannins.

Gattinara Riserva 2004 - 91 Points , Wine Advocate/ The estate's 2004 Gattinara Riserva presents a richer and darker profile, while maintaining the graceful, poised style that makes this vintage so appealing here. Dark cherries, leather, spices and earthiness come together in a generous, elegant expression of Gattinara. The wine's balance is impeccable.

Italy/ This is on of my secret weapons on wine lists; it's like the top Barolo at half the price, especially in great vintages like 2001. It's produced in an often overlooked area in northern Piedmont in the shadow of the Alps. The floral, decadent and wild fruit character is impressive, as are the chewy tannins. Try it. You'll be convinced.
