Gattinara DOCG is a noble and precious wine created by the Travaglini winery, made only with the best Nebbiolo grapes. They grow on the hills in Gattinara, on a rocky soil, in a terroir that enhances their peculiar characteristic and their mineral notes.
After the harvest in October and two-years-long aging in Slavonian oak barrels the Gattinara DOCG is poured in its unique bottle: such an exceptional wine deserves an exceptional bottle, doesn’t it? Designed for Giancarlo Travaglini in 1958 this special bottle naturally catches sediment during pouring, allowing the wine to be served directly from it, and its dark color protects the wine from light, guaranteeing impeccable conservation.
Gattinara DOCG is a symbol of excellence and tradition, famous all around the world. Its soft silky tannins, good structure, and its intense mineral fragrance make it perfect to be paired with red meat, game, and cheese.
The Gattinara DOCG was recognised as the perfect wine for Thanksgiving dinner and was awarded one of the highest scores by Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. I am well aware that these accolades are not enough to convince a foodie like you. But now, the time has come to move from theory to practice:
- Choose a wide goblet to ensure that the range of aromas is released and the aromatic notes blend together. Gently pour in some wine and tilt the goblet to observe its shiny, antique granite colour.
- Swirl the goblet on a flat surface to allow oxygen to penetrate the wine. You can smell the floral fragrance and the spicy, balsamic scents.
- Take a slow sip, inhaling through your teeth to amplify the volatile components in the back of your mouth. You can feel the balance between freshness and noble tannins, followed by notes of red fruits and fruit jellies.
Enjoy this true Piedmontese gem, a raffinate wine that will enrich your meals.
