"A generous, powerful wine, the 2013 Barbaresco Gallina exudes power and volume. Dark cherry, plum, spice, leather, smoke and licorice run through this decidedly ample Barbaresco. Gallina, a south-facing site in Neive, tends to naturally produce rich, generous wines. That is exactly what comes through here. The rich, unctuous style will appeal most to readers who appreciate bold, flamboyant wines. Ripeness feels like it is pushed to the limit. Drinking window:2020-2033. 94 points

This is a stellar set of wines from Cantina del Pino and proprietor Renato Vacca. As has been the case for the last few years, Vacca prefers to give his wines a bit more time in bottle prior to releasing them. In 2013, the Nebbiolo harvest started the first week of October and was drawn out over a longer period of time than normal. The 2013s spent six months in French oak barriques and finished their aging in cask prior to being bottled in February 2016."

Antonio Galloni, Vinous (10/17)
