Barbaresco is a DOCG wine.

Nebbiolo is an autochthonous black-berry vine from Piedmont (Italy), considered valuable and suitable for high quality aging wines (D.O.C. and D.O.C.G.). The term seems to derive from "fog", but it is unclear whether to define the appearance of the berry, dark, but clouded (clouded) by abundant pruina, or if due to the very late ripening of the grapes, which often leads to harvest in the period of autumn mists. Nebbiolo has its first historical citations at the end of the thirteenth century, for its presence in various places, primarily in Piedmont, especially for the Asti and the Langhe: in 1431 it is mentioned in the statutes of La Morra together with Pignolo. Only since the nineteenth century Nebbiolo is frequently cited in the works of the most famous ampelographers.
The Barbaresco DOCG Gallina by Oddero is typically elegant with its refined bouquet and palate, and assertive tannins. It is the expression of a marl soil rich in fine sand. Matured in oak barrels for 2 years and refined in glass for 6 months. Enveloping tannin, great length on the palate.
Tulin is the name with which since 2001 Pelissero decided to identify, the previous Barbaresco hitherto nameless. It has the name of the vineyard of origin of the grapes, in order to give it an identity valued by property whose microclimate and exposure are an arrangement of undoubted quality. Austerity typical of Nebbiolo. Technical sheet
