“A ripe and fruity nose, dominated somewhat by barrique. Integration on the palate is good however and the finish delivers a rounded, soft feeling of berry fruit, chocolate, coffee with moderate acidity.”
“Gorgeous aromas of prune, raisin, coffee and wild herb emerge as soon as the cork is pulled, while in time, complex layers of undergrowth, chocolate and damp earth sprout forth. On the palate this is rich and powerful; warm alcohol and ripe helpings of black fruit dominate while the finish is smooth and polished, almost responsibly hedonistic.”
Founded in the 1960s by Giuseppe Rivetti and his wife Lidia, La Spinetta has transcended its reputation for high quality wines from Moscato Bianco and is today known for its single vineyard wines in Barbaresco.
