Riserva 2008
Free Shipping on 3 or more

***47% OFF!***
Since the 1920s the Travaglini family has produced world-class Nebbiolo wines from Piedmont's Gattinara DOCG, often overshadowed by more famous Barolo and Barbaresco. This Riserva was aged in oak casks for 3 years with an additional 8 months in bottle before its release, and will continue to evolve well into the next decade. Complex, structured and elegant, it is one of the greatest values in all of Italian wine, especially at this tremendous discount!

Travaglini 2008 Gattinara Riserva
Points: 92
Region: Gattinara, Piedmont
Country: Italy
Drinking Window: 2014-2023 
Grape Variety: Nebbiolo
Cases Produced (12 bottles/case): 3500 
The 2008 Gattinara Riserva brings together the best elements of the house style. Pliant and expressive on the palate, the Riserva has more than enough depth to develop nicely for a number of years. Sweet tobacco, licorice, savory herbs and menthol all add layers of nuance to the dark red and black fruit. This is a solid showing from the Travaglini family.

Climate Notes
Typical of the Piedmont area, in respect to that of the plain. It permits an even distribution of precipitation between both spring and autumn, and a ventilation of the vineyard supported by almost daily “descending” winds brought about by the Alpine bow. In the winter, snow is frequent, which supports the slow process of sedimentation of the soil.
Winemaking Notes
Crushed and macerated for about 15 days in stain-less steel tanks at controlled temperature. The wine is aged for 4 years. 3 years in oak casks of different origin and sizes, then rests in the bottle for 8 months.
Tasting Notes
This wine is produced only in the best vintages. A deep pomegranate red wine; with a delicate fruity and mineral fragrance with hints of cherries, rose, liquorice and pepper. Fresh, with silky tannins, with a long and smooth finish.
The Bottle
An exceptional wine deserves an exceptional bottle. It was with that in mind that in 1958, Giancarlo Travaglini set out to create a bottle that was also a work of art. This special bottle, exclusive to Travaglini, was designed to grace the most prestigious tables in the world. The shape of this bottle naturally catches sediment during pouring, allowing the wine to be served directly from bottle to the glass without decanting. The dark-colored glass prevents light from passing through and impacting the quality of the wine. This elegant bottle was perfectly designed for storage and aging in the cellar.
Located in the heart of Gattinara, Travaglini was established in the 1920s by Clemente Travaglini. In 1958 Arturo Travaglini followed in his father’s footsteps and took over the helm at the winery. The family’s passion and commitment to winemaking has not diminished through the generations; Cinzia Travaglini, great-granddaughter of Clemente, manages day-to-day operations at winery. Her husband Massimo Collauto is the chief winemaker, a role he inherited from his late father-in-law and beloved mentor, Giancarlo Travaglini. Throughout the years, Travaglini has established itself in Gattinara as the most esteemed producer of traditional, limited-production wines from the Nebbiolo grape. Travaglini wines illustrate the full range of expressions Nebbiolo can achieve.
