Township of Neive – 2.65 ha
Gallina is the most well-known geographic area of Neive. Its name likely comes from one or more families who resided in the area in the 1800s. Gallina is easily visible from the left side of the road as one ascends from the Baraccone plains to the town of Neive. The Rigo farmhouse is part of this
vineyard’s territory, which sits at 180-210 MASL, fully south-facing. The soil is strongly characterized by light sand mixed with calcareous marl, which makes it loose and drought-prone in the summer. The sand and marl give incredible elegance and fineness to this Barbaresco.
