This area extends the lands of the Nebbiolo grape locally called Spanna, a word derived from spy, from which the prestigious DOCG Gattinara is obtained , a red wine considered a pearl of the world wine scene and a history that goes back thousands of years, so much so that sources would attest that the name derives from Catuli Araossia Ara di Catullo.

We cannot fail to underline the distinctive brand of Cantina Travaglini, the famous bottle with a sinuous shape, with which the most prestigious wines are bottled, from which you can serve the wine directly in the glass even if structured and aged, a work of art designed by Giancarlo Travaglini as early as 1958. The proposed line fully expresses all the complexity of this land, which for centuries has given truly prestigious wines. Travaglini’s Gattinara is a wine that expresses the skill with which it is created, with its unmistakable organoleptic characteristic that makes it unique.
