The Wine
The 2004 Barbaresco Gallina starts with orello cherries, developing through to thyme and black olive. It’s as if the wine is constantly changing, almost as if it’s alive in your glass. On the palate, it opens with a great deal of freshness, with notes of blackcurrant and mint. Then you’ll perceive hints of mocha and yet more body.

This is a very strong set of releases from La Spinetta and proprietor Giorgio Rivetti. The 2004 Barbarescos are easily the best of his career. The wines still see 100% new French oak, but toast levels have been reduced and the Barbarescos now spend 12 months in oak rather than the 18 months they saw in previous vintages. Both changes have had a remarkably positive effect in allowing more site-specific character and Nebbiolo fruit to come through.
