The 2007 Barbaresco Vigneto Gallina is focused and nicely articulated. This is a rather firm, nuanced Gallina from La Spinetta with gorgeous length, tons of detail and fabulous overall balance. It is at once more concentrated and also deeper than the Bordini, so another few years in bottle seem a prerequisite. The Gallina is the most improved wine the estate’s lineup. The 2007 is quite possibly the most polished, elegant Gallina I have ever tasted here. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2027.

Wine description from winery:

Color: defined red

Bouquet: winey currant and black cherry fruit, laced with bittersweet cocoa and notes of dried thyme

Taste: focused and appealing for its layers of cherry and currant, tobacco and spice flavors

Evolution: 25 to 30 years

Pairings: ideal with grilled food, sauced and elaborate red meat and wild game, or just to be enjoyed by itself
