About This Wine
The grapes hail from the first cru site La Spinetta purchased: Gallina. It features calcareous soil with bounteous chalk and limestone. The average age of the vines is 57 years. True to the La Spinetta philosophy, no pesticides or herbicides are used. The fruit undergoes maceration and alcoholic fermentation in temperature-controlled vats for an average period of 15 days. Malolactic conversion takes place in French oak barrels, of which 30% are new and the remaining used (2nd passage), followed by 20 months of aging. It is then bottle-aged for about seven months. It's ruby red in colour, with hints of ripe red fruits, poppies and cloves. The palate has notes of ripe red berries and ginger jam. It has a broad and persistent finish, with a good presence of soft, yet strong tannins.
