Barbaresco ‘Gallina’, La Spinetta [wood cs]
Gallina was the first cru acquired by Giorgio Rivetti in 1995. What sets this vineyard apart is the ripeness of the grapes that it produces. The Barbera and Nebbiolo wines from this site are always extremely sexy and elegant, with fantastic aging potential.
Technical Information: Produced from 5ha of 35-45 year old vines grown in calcareous soil at 270m above sea level. Aged 20-22 months in 50% neutral and 50% new French oak barrique, then bottled unfined/unfiltered and aged an additional one year at the winery before release.
