Beautiful freshness and poise to this Gattanara with nutmeg, dried rose petals, saffron and cinnamon. A finely constructed structure follows with velvety, steely tannins and a spiced, chewy finish.

Discover Blended Red Wine Wines

In the United States, a red mix is any American wine that isn't produced from a single grape type. It's an odd classification since many, if not all, red wines are and have always been mixes. A grand cru Bordeaux produced entirely of Cabernet, as well as Chiantis made entirely of Sangiovese, are the exception rather than the norm. In addition, California law only requires a wine's label to contain 75% of the grape type.

Winemakers combine grapes because it enables them to create a wine in a sense. A splash of Merlot may help soften Cabernet's tannins, while a dash of Syrah can give watery, inexpensive Pinot some punch. Blending is common in several regions: Rioja, for example, has traditionally blended Tempranillo, Graciano, and Garnacha. Many modern, inexpensive red blends, on the other hand, are simply created for mass appeal—lots of superripe, black fruit and no acidity—using whatever varietals would suffice.

About the Producer: Travaglini Gattinara

Travaglini Gattinara is a wine producer located in the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy. The estate devotes most of its winemaking focus to producing Nebbiolo-based wines on 44 hectares (109 acres) of vineyards grown in Gattinara. The property was founded in 1920 by Clemente Travaglini, and in 1958 the property was retaken. to his son Arturo Travaglini. Today Cinzia Travaglini fully controls the winery and works with her husband Massimo Collauto, the chief winemaker. Travaglini is best known for its collection of DOCG-classified Gattinara wines: Gattinara, Tre Vigne Gattinara and Gattinara Riserva. The Nebbiolo grape (known here as Spanna) is grown in iron-rich rocky soils on the sunny southwest slopes for the production of these wines. Riserva is produced only at the best yields and is usually aged for three years in oak barrels followed by a bottle aging for approximately 8 months. The Travaglini wine line is complemented by a small vineyard planted with two lesser-known grapes from northern Italy. varieties - Vespolina and Grape Rara. Small amounts of these red grapes are blended with the estate's Nebbiolo grapes to create the Cinzia wine label, named after the estate's current owner. The iconic bottle was originally created in 1958 by Giancarlo Travaglini. The unique format allows the wine to be served without decanting, as all the sediment is trapped in the bottle when it is poured directly into the glass. The dark colored glass is also designed to protect wine quality from the harmful effects of excessive light.
