NOTES FROM OUR SOMMELIERS
👁 A beautiful garnet red color, with orange reflections;👃🏻 the nose is exuberant and broad: fruity aromas, together with spicy hints deriving from the refinement, and a nice mineral note;
👄 when tasted it reveals a full-bodied, vigorous red with an evolved and very pleasant tannin. Persistent closes.
A red of great character, to accompany meat dishes. Try it with the typical tajarin with venison ragout.
WINE-MAKING AND REFINEMENT
From a vineyard located at an altitude (300-400 meters above sea level) characterized by rocky soil, the Nebbiolo grapes are harvested by hand - in crates - with selection in the vineyard in the first ten days of October. Vinification in steel tanks at controlled temperature for 10-15 days, three years of refinement, 2 of which in Slavonian oak barrels. Further maturation in the bottle for a period of 6 months to a year.

The winery is located in Gattinara, in the province of Vercelli, a small town in the heart of the homonymous wine region in the Upper Piedmont area, at the foot of Monte Rosa. Extraordinary place with a unique terroir, extremely suited to give life to Nebbioli of great complexity, elegance and freshness.One of the oldest disciplinary of origin in Italy, Gattinara obtained DOC recognition in 1967 and became DOCG in 1990.
The microclimate of Gattinara is what makes this area unique and perfect for viticulture. The natural position of the hills, which are located at the foot of Monte Rosa, allows for exposure from South East to South West, leaving behind the imposing chain of the Alps which acts as a protective barrier from the colder currents blowing from the North . The Alpine influence guarantees a light breeze that blows delicately at any time of day and which affects the elegance that characterizes the wines of the area.
The soil has volcanic origins, a unique condition for Nebbiolo. The lapilli and volcanic remains are mainly made up of silica, iron, magnesium, porphyry and granite, all elements that enhance the minerality of the wine, giving the wine minerality, sapidity, a persistent and pleasant freshness, characteristics that make the wines of Gattinara elegant, persistent and full of flavour.
With all the vineyards located in what is called the Val Sesia Supervolcano, at the foot of Monte Rosa, in granite, porphyritic and ferrous soils, Travaglini represents the best expression of Gattinara produced with a single grape variety: Nebbiolo.
The Travaglini family, after years of hard work, can today declare themselves proud of the wines they produce: rich in mineral notes and austere, bewitching olfactory scents that cannot be found elsewhere.
Their work is characterized by a deep bond with the territory, an extraordinary passion handed down from generation to generation and the continuous search for quality. Today, it is the fourth and fifth generation to run the winery, after Clemente Travaglini who recognized the potential of the area and, in 1920, established the first family winery in Gattinara, who wrote the history of local wine.
