In a nutshell:
A generous magnum of this wonderful Piedmontese expression of the Nebbiolo grape.
This overlooked DOCG is definitely worth trying as an alternate to a Barolo or Barbaresco. From Gattinara in the north of Piedmont where the Nebbiolo wines pre-dated those of the Langhe. Travaglini has almost single handily put this area on the map in recent years. Rich, concentrated and complex red fruit, blackberry, plum, liquorice, vanilla, cream and spice on the palate.
When to drink:
Refined, elegant yet a touch rustic, it pairs exceptionally well with many strongly flavoured recipes, red meats, game and strong cheese.
