La Spinetta Barbaresco Gallina is a soft and persuasive Barbaresco. Velvety tannins and great body define this wine, that ends with a fruity finish and floral note.
"Aromas of celery, grilled vegetables and eucalyptus oil form the unusual nose. The full-bodied assertive palate offers the merest suggestions of prunes soaked in spirits, menthol, powdered sage and a hint of roasted coffee bean. Close-grained tannins generate a bracing, mouth-drying finish. Kerin O’Keefe" - 87/100, Wine Enthusiast

"La Spinetta's 2017 Barbaresco Gallina Vürsù draws its fruit from a site in Neive with old vines. Intensity and richness are two qualities often associated with the wine made at this historic estate. A rotofermenter is used during winemaking to increase color concentration and richness, although its use is carefully measured and calculated says Giorgio Rivetti. The house style embraces barrique aging, and you get some soft spice and spent ember as a result. The 2017 vintage is distinguished by extra tightness, and you sense that in this wine."
