Good bright red. Complex nose melds dark berries, sage, menthol and licorice. Dense, sappy and wild, showing impressive tension and lively mineral high notes to the extremely backward flavors of dark berries and licorice. If the Starderi is Burgundian, this is frank nebbiolo for purists. Has plenty of buffering material for its tannins, and finishes with excellent spicy, minerally energy and lift.

Fruit for the 2010 Barbaresco Vigneto Valeirano is harvested at 450 meters above sea level in the Neive township. These conditions shape a radically different character. This wine is precise and sharp with finely etched tones of spice, dark berry and wet earth. The overall structure and power of the wine is super elegant and immediate. You can safely put this bottle away for years.

An alluring mix of cherry, raspberry, mint and earthy, balsamic notes lends distinction to this red, showing power and balance, with a long finish of mineral, spice and underbrush.

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.
