Roagna Barbaresco Gallina 2014

Roagna Barbaresco Gallina 2014

Availability: Out of stock

"The 2014 Barbaresco Gallina offers the open-knit sensuality that is so typical of wines from this site with the classically austere feel that is a signature of the Roagna wines. Sweet tobacco, cedar, licorice and dried herbs add lovely aromatic complexity. The 2014 is a bit clenched today, but it was just bottled recently. Drinking window: 2020-2029. 92 points

This is an extraordinary set of wines from Luca Roagna. The 2014 Barbarescos are superb, while the Barolos are very good, especially considering the vintage was much more challenging in Barolo than it was in Barbaresco. A stunning rendition of the flagship Barbaresco Crichët Pajè rounds out the range. Readers will see new Barbaresco bottlings from Gallina, Faset and Albesani in the range this year. As always, the wines are super-classic in feel. Over the last years, Roagna has quietly shortened the amount of time his wines spend in cask and began introducing cement in the cellar. Today's wines have a sense of fruit purity and inner sweetness that the older wines often did not. I can't recommend these wines highly enough."
