Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - Antonio Galloni:
"The 2013 Barbaresco Vigneto Gallina is a great introduction to the vintage at La Spinetta. Gallina tends to give open, soft Barbarescos that drink well young. Not here. The 2013 is unusually bright, tense and focused for this wine, with darker fruit and more tightly wound personality than I am used to seeing. Dark red cherry, mint, wild flowers and spices come together, but the 2013 is going to need time to fully come together. Even today, though, it is striking. There is a spherical breadth to the 2013 that is impossible to miss." - Antonio Galloni (Dec 2015)

94 Points - James Suckling:
"Aromas of orange peel, fresh tobacco leaf and dark berry follow through to a full body, round and velvety tannins and a nutty finish. Lots of cedar too. Gorgeous. Drink or hold." - (November 22, 2016)

93+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2013 Barbaresco Gallina Vürsù offers a tight brickwork of aromas with toned muscle and solid build at the back. The bouquet shows profound tones of dark fruit, spice, leather, tobacco, crushed stone and tar. La Spinetta's signature style, with more pronounced aromas, is very much on display in this wine." - Monica Larner (29th Jun 2016)

93 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Aromatic, with rose, cherry and black currant notes matched to an elegant frame. Though firm and linear, the finish is long and detailed. Decant now for several hours or age for two to three years. Best from 2018 through 2030. 950 cases made." – BS (Dec 31, 2016)
