La Spinetta Barbaresco Cru Gallina 2010

What do these icons mean?

100% Nebbiolo from the Gallina site in the village of Neive in the Barbaresco production zone. It's a five hectare south-facing site on calcareous soils, and the vines have an average age of between 50 and 55 years. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled rotofermenters and lasts between six and seven days. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in oak, where the wine is aged for between 20 and 22 months. From these new, medium toast French oak vessels it's transferred to stainless steel vats for three months before bottling with no fining or filtration. It is then rested for a further 12 months in bottle before release.

James Suckling – A Barbaresco that shows unique dried-fruit and warm-stone aromas, like a warm summer afternoon in the vineyards. Full body with velvety tannins and fresh acidity. It's long and intense. Lots going on here. Powerful. One of the best Gallinas ever from here. Better in 2018, but wonderful to taste now.

Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – The 2010 Barbaresco Vigneto Gallina comes from low-yield producing old vines in Neive. The wine is immensely pleasurable and bright with beautiful aromatic intensity that shines bright from the glass. Only 900 cases are produced. This vineyard expression offers notable freshness and brightness that make it suitable for long cellar aging. This is a truly magnificent wine. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028.
