Mid-weight, chewy and tart with notes of cherry, black licorice, nutella, dried herbs and mushroom.
Aromas of mature red berry, dark plum, chopped herb and a balsamic note come together in the glass. The structured mid-weight palate delivers dried cherry, star anise, cinnamon and mineral alongside firm, refined tannins.
Enticing aromas of pressed rose, iris and perfumed berry lead the nose, with a whiff of cake spice on this straightforward red. The elegant, enjoyable palate offers sour red cherry, raspberry, white pepper and a hint star anise alongside firm, refined tannins. A tobacco note signals the close.
Extremely perfumed with rose, dark-fruit and strawberry aromas and flavors. Full body, firm tannins and a clean, crisp finish. So delicious to taste. Drink now.
The 2010 Gattinara is a firm, classically austere wine with persistent tannins and a slightly compact personality. It will be interesting to see if the 2010 puts on weight in bottle, or if the tannins soften, as today, the wine is very much shut down. Sweet dried cherries, tobacco, crushed herbs and dried flowers add shades of nuance through the middle and finish. I have seen Travaglini wines blossom with age before, although I don't really see that happening here.
Made from Nebbiolo aged in large casks, this garnet-colored wine offers lovely fragrances of rose petal and woodland berry. The elegant palate doles out crunchy red cherry, crushed raspberry, clove and mineral, alongside smooth, polished tannins. Fresh acidity adds vibrancy.
Cherry, licorice, tobacco and sweet spice details highlight this chewy red. This is developing quickly and leaves a dusty feel on the finish.
Heady and rich with the effusive character of the 2007 vintage, this pairs dusty cherry scents with porcini in a firm, gentle nebbiolo. The earthy finish will match braised pork with white beans.
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.
Sweet floral aromatics emerge from the 2006 Gattinara. This deceptively medium-bodied wine shows good depth in its red fruit. It is an attractive, representative Gattinara well-suited for drinking over the next few years.
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. 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.
Here's a light and tonic expression of Nebbiolo (in a specially designed curvy bottle) with pretty aromas of wild berries, moist earth and forest floor. The color is a light and lumninous ruby and the mouthfeel is equally streamlined and fresh. Firm tannins and intense flavors of smoke and cedar build momentum on the palate.
Medium red with an amber rim. Aromas of red cherry, violet and marzipan. Intensely flavored but light on its feet, with classic nebbiolo energy and flavors of red fruits and tar on the fresh, smooth palate.
A very pretty, silky wine redolent of perfumed cherries, spices, flowers and tobacco all of which are supported by a graceful, finessed texture. The mediumÂ]bodied 2004 Gattinara is an especially refined wine from Travaglini
