Wow! Bought this weird large format (3.78L = 1 Gallon) Gattinara from Flatiron Wines. Thanks to Theo at La Compagnie for offering to open it with Port tongs. Opened and decanted with a large group of friends. Less sediment than you would expect or at least less than in many Travaglini. Worked our way through three bottles over the course of 60+ minutes, leaving two by the side to see how they evolved. Good fruit for a 46 year old wine, that started out with a bit of red and then evolved to more dark and more earth and mushroom came out too. — 6 years ago

Bottle no. 4260 (of 10300).
Italian wines generally take up a small space of my cellar but I really do enjoy them aged. This was no exemption.
Based on tonight's experience I have a few Travaglini's from the '80's that might see the corkscrew soon.

Cork pulled cleanly; still in excellent condition. Took my time enjoying the rose petal, soil and truffle aromas and the dried sour cherry, earth, mushroom, and briney flavors, nicely complemented by a beautiful mushroom risotto courtesy of @Steven Perlman. — 6 years ago
2023/2. Quite dusty and dry, a bit hard…this may just need a bit more time though. — 2 months ago
