International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 93

Saturated deep red. Deep but reticent aromas of ripe cherry and spicy oak. Very densely packed but showing less flesh today than Rivetti other '98s. Quite unevolved but already displays a steely core of spice and mint. A powerful, rather musclebound Barbaresco that finishes with superb length and fine, dusty tannins. Rivetti's '98s should be long-lived.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 137

The complex, elegant 1998 Barbaresco Vigneto Gallina exhibits aromas and flavors of pepper, cedar, black cherries, plums, soy, earth, and new oak. Full-bodied, pure, seamless, and well-balanced, with low acidity, this expressive, beautifully made wine should drink well for 10-12 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

A subtle Barbaresco, with berry, spice and a hint of tar. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a medium, flavorful finish. Well-balanced.
