HISTORY AND COMPANY
The Travaglini winery is located in northern Piedmont, on the hills of Gattinara, near the Monte Rosa chain. The company is family run, and was born in 1958 from the experience of Arturo Travaglini, was then handed down to his son Giancarlo and from these to his daughter Cinzia, who leads her with her husband Massimo. The estate covers 59 hectares of which 44 are vineyards. The main grape of the territory is the nebbiolo, which in this terroir is expressed with very particular characteristics and with incredible mineral notes. From the Nebbiolo vine the "Gattinara DOCG" is produced, a wine with structure and particular longevity, and the "Nebbiolo DOC Coste della Sesia", a young and fruity wine. A part of the surface is dedicated to vespolina and rare grapes, with these the wine "Cinzia" is produced. The vineyards have an age ranging from 6 to 45 years, are well exposed and are raised with a simple Guyot plant. The soil and the subsoil from which the Gattinara Travaglini originates is rocky, on the hills there are granites, porphyries and iron which gives the typical reddish color. The absence of limestone makes it a particular soil, with a strong acid reaction, these characteristics, rather rare in the vineyards, make Gattinara a unique wine rich in olfactory perceptions. In the cellar the work continues with care and respect, the fermentation takes place in steel tanks at a controlled temperature, in order to preserve the profile of the grapes, the refinement takes place in two stages, partly in large oak barrels and then a short time passes period in smaller barrels. Thanks to tradition, a passion for work and a constant commitment to improving wine while respecting the territory, the Travaglini Family offers us wonderful, long-lived and interesting wines, but above all of undoubted quality.
