Price: $29.95

Drink: 2014-2021

Bottle size: 750 ml

Alcohol: 13.5%

Sweetness: Extra Dry

Wine Type: Red Wine


Winery: Travaglini Gattinara

Agent: Lifford Wine & Spirits

Natalie's Score: 87/100

If you like Barolo, try this one as it's also made from the Nebbiolo grape. This seductive, robust Italian red wine is still quite tannic with tarry black fruit and violets, so it needs cellar time. Decant 2 hours. Try it with a rack of lamb.

Food pairings: beef, mushroom risotto, gorgonzola.
