Travaglini Gattinara 2016
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Gattinara|
A deep pomegranate red wine; medium-bodied wine shows good depth in its red fruit. Soft silky tannins, with a good structure and intense mineral fragrance. Food matches: red meat, poultry and game, and cheese.
The tannins sneak up on you, imparting a raspy feel on the finish, yet this offers plump cherry and strawberry fruit midpalate. Light mint and eucalyptus accents add interest. Rustic. Drink now through 2024. 180,000 cases made, 5,250 cases imported.
