Barbaresco Gallina is typically elegant with its refined bouquet and palate, and assertive tannins. It is the expression of a marl soil rich in fine sand. Red in colour with pale garnet tinges. Particular finesse in the bouquet, with balance and complexity, scents of ripe red fruit, spices and violets (typical of Nebbiolo). Mouth-filling tannins, excellent persistence on the palate.

Wine SpectatorThere is purity to the black cherry and plum fruit, shaded by tobacco, tar, underbrush and mineral notes. A broad swath of tannins sweeps in on the finish, resulting in an awkward feel. Needs time. Best from 2023 through 2042. 540 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastAromas of exotic spice, menthol, blue flower and a whiff of woodland berry come together on the fragrant, elegantly structured wine. The tight focused palate delivers juicy red cherry, pomegranate, licorice, clove and a hint of espresso alongside firm close-grained tannins. Fresh acidity lends balance. Drink 2023-2033.

Wine AdvocateReining back on the hot vintage ripeness, the 2015 Barbaresco Gallina is elegant and precise. The aromas are direct and clear, with earthy tones and licorice at the back. This is a relatively new addition to the Oddero portfolio. The first vintage made was 2004.
