2006 Barbaresco Gallina, Piero Busso, Piedmont

This is treated very differently from the other Cru wines, as it is given two years in barrique, a year in tank and a year in bottle before release. It transforms the style, with bigger and bolder colour coming from the barrique, as well as flashier fruit. This has a lovely texure: ripe and round with tannins to the fore, this is a more powerfully extracted style, with dried fruit on the palate and even a slight balsamic note. This is a terrific wine, which displays all of the generosity for which Gallina is famed.

2006 Barbaresco Gallina, Piero Busso, Piedmont
Piero Busso

Started in 1953, Piero Busso has always been a family affair. Piero remains in charge, but he’s joined by his son Pierguido, wife Lucia, and daughter Emanuela. They’re as delightful a family as you’d hope to meet, with charm that seems to influence their wines. They aim for every wine to be as recognisable and individual as possible. This approach works wonders, without following fads or trends. They’re some of the most individual, expressive wines we’ve discovered.
