The 1999 Barbera d'Alba Gallin is awesome! I am not sure it will get any better since Barbera is not one of the most noble varietals in terms of complexity and intensity. It does, however, offer glorious levels of concentration as well as a huge nose of smoked meats, blackberry, cherry, and strawberry jam with licorice, new oak, and barbecue spice. Viscous, remarkably dense ans sexy. It is impossible to resist. For drinking now and over the next 4-5 years, this is as profound a dry red wine as readers will find.
