Mystery is half the fun: Travaglini Cinzia

A: ruby but showing age with amber notes

N: medium intensity with savoury herbs, tar and plums and cherries with earthy forest notes

P: medium bodied with fine high tannins, flavours of sour cherry and herbs, savoury, tar notes, quite high acid making the wine tart. Rustic goodness.

C: good quality wine of possibly 2013 vintage. An interesting Italian style from Gattinara. You can imagine people drinking this in the day at local taverna…with some utterly delicious food.
