2011 Travaglini Gattinara DOCG

November 1, 2016

 

This is an interesting little Piedmont wine.  100% Nebbiolo.  Notes of roast beef on the nose.  Smooth cedar, some notes of cigar box, tanned leather, earth, some sauteed onion, and light notes of green pepper.  Extremely smooth, with some good acidic balance, but not a lot of tannin.  Well aged at this point and drinking nicely.  Strange looking bottle (although mine appears to be signed by the wine maker) that holds very tasty wine!  90-91 points.  Great quality-price-ratio!
