Tasting Note:

The Gallina Viti Vecchie makes its debut in 2015 – coming from a plot of old vines located in the centre of the Cru, planted in 1953. The soil in this part of the vineyard is rich in calcareous clay, alternating with bluish-grey marl and sands. Vivid and precise, everything is neatly in place. Stony and salty with fresher notes of summer fruits, flowers and mint, reinforced by a sweet and well-integrated tannic structure. A wonderful wine with bags of character and a silky refinement without losing any of its Nebbiolo energy and focus. Every inch the Grand Cru. Fermentation was in wooden vats, followed by a submerged cap maceration lasting 60 days. Ageing was in large Slavonian oak casks for 36 months, prior to 36 months in bottle.
