Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

($27) Red-ruby. Scented aromas of black cherry, blackberry, licorice, violet and spice cake. Lush and chewy in the mouth though essentially gentle, with superb vinosity and thrust. Strong inner-mouth violet perfume. Has the strong fruit to balance the oak on the long finish.

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.

Wine Varietal: Barbera

Barbera thrives in hot, dry climates, so it is well-suited to its historical home, the Piedmont region. The most well-known examples are Barbera d'Alba and Barbera d'Asti. It is also grown in warm climates such as the San Joaquin Valley in California where it is used for bulk wine. Barbera has the tendency to be high in alcohol and acid, but low in tannins. Typical descriptors for Barbera include red fruit, currants, cranberries and blackberries.
