LA SPINETTA Barbera d'Alba 'Gallina' 2009

The La Spinetta Barbera d’Alba ‘Galina’ comes from Barbera grown in the very center of the Gallina Barbaresco vineyard. It's a full-bodied, powerful Barbera that brings seductive aromas and flavors of ripe blackberries, leather, fresh violets, spices, and licorice. This is well structured, showing plenty of depth and concentration with a beautiful layer of underlying acidity that gives this lift as it heads into the long finish. The 2009 Gallina is a massive Barbera that should last well over a decade. This spent 18 months in French oak, 6 months in steel vats and 3 months in bottle before release. (Best 2014-2025) - July, 2013 (JD)
