Barbera Superiore, Filippo Gallino

Barbera Superiore, Filippo Gallino - 2012

Item # 37000 750mL

Quite a different style of Barbera and a Superiore that the Filippo Gallino winery just started making in 2004. Very gourmand on the palate in the sense this tastes much more serious and has a greater extraction of fruit and tannin. Aged a couple of years in mostly used French oak casks. If you're a fan of unctuous, overtly fruited reds with structure, give this a try. The Filippo Gallino estate is located in the Roero area of Piedmont and has been making wine for seven generations.

Several other Piedmontese grapes make striking and delicious wines: Pelaverga produces light-colored reds with distinctive notes of strawberry, cherry, and pink peppercorn. The red Freisa is vinified in a variety of styles:...

Wherever they fall on the spectrum of stodginess, however, they are generally ruby-colored, full-bodied, and highly acidic, with remarkably low levels of tannins. The areas that are most strongly associated with Barbera (for good reason) are the Alba and Asti DOCs, which consistently produce...
