Oddero Barbaresco Gallina 2013 750ml
Barbaresco, Pietmont, Italy
Jancis Robinson 17
Neive. Just mid ruby with orange rim. A little reductive and a tiny bit leathery on the nose and with a hint of oak. Quite closed and backward palate, with very compact, bright fruit underneath. Super-embryonic and with bags of coating tannins. Yet there is transparency.
Wine Spectator 94
An elegant, supple style, featuring cherry, strawberry, floral and subtle tar flavors. The tannins flex their muscles on the finish, but this remains balanced and long, showing fine potential. Best from 2019 through 2033. 600 cases made.
