Description Sub Region Producer Notes
Nicely oaky and gorgeously delineated, the ’16 Barbaresco Gallina layers its lush red and blue fruits on a graceful framework of rose petals, baking spices, cigar wrapper, warm river rocks, and pressed mint. Barbaresco Gallina is the most elegant of La Spinetta’s rock-star 2016 releases, wrapping its sweet fruits around a sturdy tannic core, balancing its sweet inner perfume with a savory bass line, and complementing its vivid acidity with lush dry extract. Cellar for a few years and then enjoy for decades. Deriving from vines aged 50 to 55 years grown in an 11-acre southern-facing plot of calcareous clay, the grapes ferment for about a week with temperature control, and the wine ages first in barrique for about 21 months, then in stainless steel for three months, and finally a year in bottle before release.
