This is one of the more reticent powerful Gallinas I can remember tasting from La Spinetta. Dark flowers mint tar licorice and French oak are some of the notes that resonate on the explosive finish. This is a wine that will require patience but it is impressive for its completeness something I haven't always been able to say about this wine. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. --- Antonio Galloni
