Garnet red color, with ruby reflections. Bright aromas of ripe cherry, plum, fresh cigar, and anise on the nose. Perfumed and sweet in the mouth, with loads of ripe fruit and spice flavors. Long and firm on the spicy finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2005 Barolo Vigna Gancia is another sweet, layered wine, with plenty of macerated cherries, plums, herbs, menthol and spices. This is a more detailed Barolo than the overt, fruit-driven Gallinotto, and it lacks some of that wine's sheer ripeness and depth. Elements of greenness lurk in the background. 2010-2020.

Wine SpectatorDisplays pure Nebbiolo fruit character, with ripe strawberry and rose aromas. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins. There's pretty chocolate and berry fruit in the aftertaste. Best after 2011. 350 cases made.
