Oddero 2019 'Gallina' Barbaresco, Piedmont, Italy

Farming: Certified organic

Winemaker/Chef du Cave: Maria Cristina Oddero (2nd Generation)

Varieties: Nebbiolo

Terroir / Soil: Neive Gallina, Plot 10, Sub-plots 114, 327 Characteristics: 200 meters above sea level, southeastern exposure, 2.7 x 0.9 meters spacing, 4,500 vines/hectare density, Guyot upwardtrained vertical-trellised training system. Age: a portion is 50 years old, and a more recent one is 13 years old.

Vinification/: Like all Nebbiolo vineyards, vines are scrupulously grown and grapes are selected manually, both in the vineyards and in the cellar. The grapes, previously arranged in 18 kg cases, are transfered onto a conveyor belt and then undergo gentle de-stemming and pressing. The alcoholic fermentation and the maceration last for appoximately 25 days at a constant temperature of 28°C. The malolactic fermentation follows in December.

Aging: Ageing in 40Hl oak barrels - hectoliter French and Austrian oak barrels. Bottling takes place at the end of the summer, with a further six months of bottle ageing before release on the market.

Tasting Notes: 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.
