Very good deep red. More plum and redcurrant fruitiness to stand up to the oak aroma; slightly minty. Sweet, lush and lovely, with very good acidity and strong fruit. Possesses more density to support the ripe, nicely integrated tannins. Minty and quite long. For the cellar.
A beautiful wine, with raspberry and floral aromas. Full-bodied, with silky, caressing tannins and a long, long finish. Gorgeous now, but will improve with age. -- 1996 Piedmont retrospective. (Web-2007)
The terrifically fruity, quite flattering 1996 Barbaresco Vigneto Gallina is full-bodied, with outstanding concentration, plenty of earthy, plum/cherry, smoky, spice scents, low acidity, and moderate tannin in the layered finish. (RP)
