Gattinara Selezione 2004

THE WORTHIEST AND MOST “ARISTOCRATIC OF ITALIAN” WINES” Mario Soldati’s short but meaningful comment really does sum up what many connoisseurs think about that “pearl” of the world’s oenological landscape, the Gattinara DOCG appellation. This is a family-run company and the experience and passion for quality has been passed on from Arturo Travaglini, who was already producing Gattinara way back in 1958, to his son Giancarlo. Nowadays the company is run by Giancarlo’s wife Liliana, his daughters Cristina and Cinzia and his son-in-law Massimo. There is a marriage of modern technology and the tradition of wood when it comes to maturing the Gattinara wine produced in this way: the Slovenia oak barrels closely guard and mature this “nectar” (as laid down in the specifications, the Gattinara Selezione and the Tre Vigne are kept in this way for two years and the Riserva for at least 3 years) which will then become Gattinara DOCG.
