100% Nebbiolo vines that range from 40 to 50 years in age, made with fruit from a leased parcel in Neive with calcareous sandy soils that help shape the aromatic purity and freshness on display here.
This is the second vintage from the Roagna family. The 2015 Barbaresco Gallina reveals a slightly spicier or more balsamic character than 2014, with cherry cola, rosemary essence and dried garden mint. With fruit from Neive, the Gallina sports broad shoulders and carries extra fruit weight and structural heft. The finish is silky and polished with medium-long length. Only 2,862 bottles exist.
