Description

92 points James Suckling

  Extremely perfumed with rose, dark-fruit and strawberry aromas and flavors. Full body, firm tannins and a clean, crisp finish. So delicious to taste.   (11/2015)

90 points Vinous

  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…Sweet dried cherries, tobacco, crushed herbs and dried flowers add shades of nuance through the middle and finish…Travaglini is one of the historic names in Gattinara. Quality has been up and down in the recent past, but I must say these new releases are all terrific and provide a glimpse into what makes Nebbiolo in Gattinara so special. (AG)   (8/2015)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

  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. (KO)   (2/2016)
