Busso Piero Barbaresco Gallina DOCG 2010
The 2010 Barbaresco Gallina treats us to sweet candied cherry aromas with nice intensity, steady balance and an expressive personality. Only 2,800 bottles were made. - WA90
Intense garnet colour with the aroma of violets and small fruit undertones. This wine is full-bodied with soft, balanced tannins that have a unique sweetness. - Winemaker's Notes
Neive. Very heady nose. Great attack and freshness. Transparent structure with some real sweetness before the remarkably tannic finish. The toughest of Piero Busso's 2010 Barbarescos. Already some persistence. I tasted this again at the end of the tasting and was still most impressed by the precision. And length. QGV Jancis Robinson-JR17.5
