($150) Good deep medium red. Roasted, smoky nose hints at menthol. Fat, large-scaled and powerful; comes across as sweeter than the 2001 but less refined, despite possessing solid underlying minerality. Showing more shoulders today than the 2001. Finishes with lovely ripe tannins and excellent brea dth.

Popped and poured over dinner last night. Lovely floral nose right out of the gate with a hint of licorice. Medium bodied Barolo with a distinct dark-cherry mid-palate and a silky finish that lasted 30 or so seconds. The tannins have softened substantially since I last tasted this wine 2 or so years ago. Terrific young Barolo.

Very well balanced Barolo. Spice, red fruits, slight floral notes. Popped and poured and it showed very well. Nice structure with good acidity to suggest this well age well. 2 of us polished off a bottle in no time. 50+8+8+18+9=93

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.
