The Oddbins Take

The Cantine Gemma premises formerly belonged to the Marchesi Falletti’s Opera Pia Barolo, which we rather like the idea of. Although it’s now a fully decked, state-o’-the-art winery, we like to imagine that the spirits of the opera singers still inhabit the place and imbue the wines with a certain romance and drama.


It certainly tastes like that with Giblin, which is a delightful overture, with the statuesque male protagonist of firm tannins and smoke playing perfectly against the wistful, feminine notes of roses and heady yet elegant spice. Bravo.
