During the last 40 years Giancarlo Travaglini has managed to take the name of the historical wine, Gattinara, around the world, when the area lacked other quality producers. Northern Piedmont has a long tradition in the production of outstanding red wines based mainly on the Nebbiolo grape, and the best Gattinara wines are 100% Nebbiolo.
The Riserva Gattinara is made only in the best vintages. A careful selection of grapes is made from maximum 10-15 rows situated at specific locations. The wine spend at least three years in oak barrels and 1 year in the bottle. 25%-30% of the wine is aged in small barrels.
Deep garnet ruby-red colour, it is a full and harmonic wine, the bouquet verges on dried fruit, violet, blackberry, raspberry with hints of spices coming form the barrels. Deep, dry and full-bodied taste, long and lingering with the correct degree of tannin.
