On this Thursday night before the start of the weekend before the 4th of July I have opened the 2012 Travaglini Estate Bottled Gattinara.

On the the nose there are very expressive notes of red fruit, cherry, strawberry, plum, raspberry, Rose, licorice, mint and baking spice.

On the palate I am getting continuation of the red fruit, cherry, raspberry, plum, anise, herbaceous, spice, leather, rose, clay pot and oak.

This wine is full bodied with medium + acidity and medium + gripping tannins that lead to a long enjoyable finish. Have an enjoyable weekend and please be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Needed a little coaxing, but some great lifted Nebbiolo character here. Marasca cherry, violet, rock, stick cinnamon

Well balanced with hints of earth and nice acidity. Great with our Italian pappardelle pasta!

Excellent value for its type. Not as complex as Barolo or Barbaresco but has all of the attractive aromas and structure if it's higher priced cousins. Very pale brick red with an orange rim. Medium intensity of dried red cherry, tomato leaf, iodine. Medium body, high acid, slightly saline, chalky high astringency outlasts the fruit coupled with a noticeable bitterness leaves a slightly rustic mouthfeel. Well integrated alcohol 13.5% throws no heat or prickle. Medium finish, medium intensity and complexity cassis, fresh red cherry, herbal.

I used to love this wine 10 years ago, but I'm less impressed with it now. A cool vintage, it has enough balance in fruit and earth, but could use a touch more acid to go with our food. It did open up more and improve with air though.
