LA SPINETTA 2009 "GALLINA" BARBERA D'ALBA

WINE ADVOCATE 92 POINTS - “The 2009 Barbera d’Alba Gallina is rich, powerful and direct. I am surprised by the wine’s huge structure, as I expected a softer Barbera given the vintage and site. Plums, mocha, licorice and grilled herbs all flesh out in the powerful, incisive Barbera. With time in the glass, the wine turns increasingly floral and delicate, yet never loses its essential depth. Readers will need to be patient, but there is no denying the 2009 is shaping up to be a wonderful bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.”

La Spinetta’s first Barbaresco wine came from the “Gallina” Cru in Nieve, but a significant portion grows world class Barbera. Barbera “Gallina” is perhaps the finest example in this selection of La Spinetta’s rare balance of richness and purity.
