A few months back, we spoke with the wonderful Alessia C. Travaglini about her family’s winery in northern Piemonte and the truly intriguing wines made there.

You can find that two part interview both here and here.

I’ve been a fan of her family’s wines for quite some time now and have often surprised dinner quests by blind tasting friends and family with the Travaglini Gattinara DOCG Classico currently available through Vintages for $37.95. It is certainly most worthy of your attention, especially if you are partial to the Nebbiolo grape but would like to move out of the usual Barolo/Barbaresco axis. There’s a very particular delicacy and finesse I find in these wines that is simply irresistible.

This week, however, we taste though the highly regarded 2018 Tre Vigne bottling, an utterly gorgeous expression of Nebbiolo from this unique region, and a wine that would be perfect for a special dinner.
