The Cantina del Pino 2016 Barbaresco Gallina opens to soft and pliant red fruit that wraps smoothly over the palate. This wine shows an immediate and accessible character that makes it a pleasure to drink straight out of the gate. Dark fruit tones segue to spice, spent embers and tangy medicinal herb. To the palate, this wine offers good volume and a medium-rich, fleshed out approach. A plate of traditional agnolotti del plin stuffed with minced meat would make a perfect match. Production is small with just 1,800 bottles produced.

The 2016 Barbaresco Gallina is a very pretty, approachable wine. Sweet red berry fruit, flowers, mint and pine all flesh out as this supple, mid-weight Barbaresco opens in the glass. Best of all, the 2016 can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring. The Gallina is the most accessible of the 2016s at this stage.
