WINE OF THE DAY 9/27/16 Travaglini Gattinara 2010 $36.99

September 27, 2016

Winemaker's Notes

Deep ruby red color with garnet reflections. Aromas of red fruit, blackberry, plum and licorice with hints of vanilla and leather. Full-bodied, with intense flavors of cherry, raspberry and spice culminating in a long and smooth finish.

Enjoy on its own or an outstanding pair with red meat, game and hard cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

  • JS92
    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. Drink now."
  • V90
    Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "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, as today, the wine is very much shut down. Sweet dried cherries, tobacco, crushed herbs and dried flowers add shades of nuance through the middle and finish. I have seen Travaglini wines blossom with age before, although I don't really see that happening here. "
