IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

Wine Enthusiast 93 points - Attractive aromas of rose, wild berry and aromatic herb lead the nose on this elegantly structured red. The bright palate offers crushed raspberry, juicy dark cherry, licorice and clove alongside firm polished tannins. A flinty mineral note energizes the finish. Hold for more complexity. Drink 2019-2026..September/2017

Wine & Spirits 90 points - Travaglini has bucked the single-vineyard trend in Gattinara, opting instead to continue the tradition of making a riserva only in the best vintages. This 2011 shows the warmth of the growing season in its ample alcohol and baked plum notes, while herbal flavors bring out classic notes of truffle and dried leaves along with the hint of iron characteristic of Gattinara’s volcanic soils..December/2017

Wine Advocate 91 points - Travaglini’s 2011 Gattinara Riserva sees fruit sourced from the best rows of vines from various parcels located throughout the entire property. The wine is only produced in the best vintages. This is a more austere and structured wine with layered tones of black fruit, spice, licorice and campfire ash. There is a floral element of pressed rose petals that appears with delicate intensity at the back. In the mouth, this wine offers power and good structure..August/2017

Grapes are grown in Piedmont’s Gattinara D.O.C.G., in hillside vineyard parcels at elevations of 900 - 1,400 feet. The soil is rocky, well-drained limestone

Following traditional red fermentation, the wine is aged for one year in French oak barriques and 20-24 months in Slovenian oak casks. It is then refined in bottle for one year prior to release

Serve with grilled or roasted meat, hearty stews and flavorful cheeses

You instantly recognize the wines of Travaglini, thanks to its distinctive bottle. In 1958, Giancarlo Travaglini created a bottle with a unique asymmetrical shape that serves as a storage vessel and a decanter for wine. There is a shallow hump in the side of the bottle that serves to catch any sediment during pouring. Today, the estate is run by Cinzia Travaglini and her winemaker husband Massimo. They farm 44 hectares of vines in the Gattinara appellation. The vast majority is Nebbiolo, but they also farm small parcels of Vespolina and Uva Rara. The vines range from six to 45 years in age. -Monica Larner, WA (8/17)

 

 

 

Travaglini is a family-owned wine estate in the tiny Gattinara appellation within north Italy’s renowned Piedmont region. Established in the 1920s by Clemente Travaglini, the winery is Gattinara’s most esteemed producer of traditional, limited-production wines from the nebbiolo grape (known locally as "spanna”). The family’s passion for winemaking has not diminished through the generations; Cristina and Cinzia Travaglini, great-granddaughters of Clemente, manage day-to-day operations at winery. Cinzia’s husband Massimo Collauto is chief winemaker, a role he inherited from his late father-in-law and beloved mentor, Giancarlo Travaglini (winemaker at Travaglini for 45 years). Giancarlo’s wife, Lilliana, oversees vineyard operations.

 

this wine is produced only in the best vintages. A deep pomegranate red wine; with a delicate fruity and mineral fragrance with hints of cherries, rose, liquorice and pepper. Fresh, with silky tannins, with a long and smooth finish
