La Spinetta- Gallina - Barbera d'Alba

Tasting notes

The La Spinetta Barbera d'Alba Gallina is rich, powerful with a complex structure. The wine has a strikingly rich bouquet with a beautiful fruit concentration and a breathable freshness. We distinguish plums, mocha, liquorice, cedar and herbs in the nose. On the palate, this beautiful Barbera has a velvety texture and is very soft to the touch. Complex and delicate and warm and freshness go together wonderfully in the La Spinetta Gallina. Like all wine from La Spinetta, this Barbera D'Alba also has a beautiful drinking window (2024+).

The vineyard is located at an altitude of 270 meters south-facing on a calcareous plateau. The vineyard for the Gallina is only 4 hectares with vines of 40 years and older. The location is Gallina en Neive in the heart of Barbaresco. The harvest date is the end of September. Very small yield. Fermentation and maceration in rotating fermentation tanks with temperature control. Apple-milk fermentation and maturation for 16 to 18 months (!) In French oak barrels. The wine is neither clarified nor filtered.
