Travaglini, Gattinara 2018

Price
€31

The calling card of the terroir and style of Gattinara. The grapes come from several parcels on some 350 to 400 meters high, south to southwest facing slopes. Cool nights and the volcanic soil give the wine a delicate, mineral character with fresh acidity.

After harvest, the grapes ferment on stainless steel, then the wine matures for 30 months in large traditional Slavonian oak barrels. The wine is very refined in the nose, with aromas of juicy red cherries, roses, violets and some spicy notes, minerality and licorice in the background. Elegant and delicate on the palate with small red fruits and flowers, fine acidity and a fine grip from the nicely ripe tannins. The wine is bottled in the bottle specially designed by Giancarlo Travaglini.

In the south-west of Savoie lies the village of Jongieux, where Antoine and his parents make congenial, unaffected wines from local grape varieties. For whites these are jacquère and roussette and for reds gamay and mondeuse. The vineyards are situated on poor limestone slopes at about 400 meters altitude. The area has even recently been classified as a national heritage site because of its beauty. And for 7th generation Antoine, preserving this landscape is one of the most important aspects and therefore the domaine is certified 'Haute Valeur Environnementale', which means they are super sustainable.
