Travaglini

Located in the heart of Gattinara, Travaglini was established in the 1920s by Clemente Travaglini. In 1958 Arturo Travaglini followed in his father’s footsteps and took over the helm at the winery. The family’s passion and commitment to winemaking has not diminished through the generations; Cinzia Travaglini, great-granddaughter of Clemente, manages day-to-day operations at winery. Her husband Massimo Collauto is the chief winemaker, a role he inherited from his late father-in-law and beloved mentor, Giancarlo Travaglini.

Throughout the years, Travaglini has established itself in Gattinara as the most esteemed producer of traditional, limited-production wines from the Nebbiolo grape, their wines illustrating the full range of expressions that Nebbiolo can achieve.

Travaglini owns 59 hectares of land in Gattinara, 44 of which are planted with vines. Nebbiolo, or Spanna as it is locally known, is the main grape cultivated and the vines are between 6 and 45 years old. Planting density varies according to vine age, with the older plants at 3,500 vines per hectare and the younger plants at 5,000 vines per hectare.

In order to obtain wines of great quality, careful work is done in the vineyard to achieve perfectly healthy and balanced grapes. During vinification, fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures, to preserve the aromatic profile of the grapes.
