($98) Full, deep red, slightly less saturated than the Gallina. Plum, menthol and nutty, smoky oak on the nose, along with a hint of exotic spices; conveys a cooler character than the Gallina. Sweet on entry, then minerally, young and unforthcoming in the middle palate, with firm acids. Has a solid core of fruit, but today the wine's substantial tannins dominate the finish. This will need time.

Extremely refined red. Sleek and very well-crafted. Lovely aromas of plums and cedar, with hints of tobacco. Full-bodied, with sweet and refined fruit and very polished tannins. Goes on and on. 1,000 cases made.

About This Producer


Founded in 1977 by Lidia and Pin Rivetti, La Spinetta has grown from a small Piedmont producer of Moscato into a extensive operation which now also crafts Barbera, Barbaresco, and Barolo. Along with their original holdings in Piedmont, La Spinetta has also expanded into Tuscany, where they produce Sangiovese, Vermentino, and other native Tuscan varieties. La Spinetta is run by Pin's three sons - Carlo, Bruno, and Giorgio. As the head of production, Giorgio is also the face of the company. However, all three brothers work together on the business with the same ultimate goal - producing quality wine above everything else. Giorgio's wines are both approachable and designed to be enjoyed with food, and all of the wines are produced from 100% estate grown fruit. As validation of his innovation and success, Giorgio's debut Barolo, the 2000 Campe della Spinetta, earned a 98-point score from Wine Spectator.
