Travaglini Gattinara Tre Vigne 2019


In Stock

“The 2019 Gattinara Tre Vigne is another attractive wine in this range. It is done in a more forward style than the other wines in the lineup, presenting a touch more new oak sweetness. Macerated cherry, kirsch, new leather, herbs and a kiss of oak all grace this supple, wonderfully expressive Gattinara. Best of all, the 2019 will drink well with minimal cellaring. It’s a wine of pure pleasure that retains a link to the classic style favored here. Drinking window: 2025-2037. 93 points

These are some of the best wines I have ever tasted from Travaglini. That’s significant not just for the winery, but also for the region. Travaglini is by far the most important and visible estate in Alto Piemonte. Travaglini’s production accounts for 50% of the volume of the entire Gattinara appellation. That means visitors traveling throughout the region are more likely to encounter a Travaglini Gattinara in shops or restaurant lists than any other wine. The style remains rigorously classic. Perhaps the 2018 and 2019 vintages have helped elevate these wines. Time will tell. Hopefully, these new releases are a sign of a newfound level of quality. That would be terrific news for a region that desperately needs more benchmark producers.”
