OFFER OF THE MONTH – La Spinetta

On this April 2022, we would love to give our beloved clients the opportunity to get to know some of the very best wines from Piedmont, and more precisely those produced by the legendary LA SPINETTA.
In the list below, you will find our current allocation which includes some true gems. Let’s now go deeper about each one of their stunning wines:
Barbaresco Gallina is the label that mostly contributed to the fame of La Spinetta not only in Italy, but all over the world. The producer defines it as “Attractive, sensual and balanced” and continues by adding “A soft and persuasive Barbaresco. Velvety tannins and great body define this wine, that ends with a fruity finish and floral note. With 1995 as the first vintage ever produced of Barbaresco Gallina, it has an average yearly production of around 6500 bottles, making it very small production and a very rare wine, extremely distant from the numbers of the big commercial producers.
Barolo Campé is a “Regal, complex and harmonious Barolo” and “A complex and majestic Barolo, with an aromatic profile that ranges from rose petals to plum and black berries, leading up to white truffles and underbrush. The tannic structure is solid and harmonious, with a full and mighty finish.”
Barbaresco Starderi is described to be “Energetic, balanced and captivating” and “a Barbaresco with an exceptional balance between mature tannin and acidity, holding a strong character and solid structure. Delicate aromas of plum and ripe fruit make Starderi extremely enjoyable in youth, whilst expressing its maximum potential after a few years of bottle aging.” The first vintage ever produced of Barbaresco Starderi was 1996 and the average yearly production of 7’000 bottles make this kind of a niche wine, very distant from the logics of mass market. A Riserva Barbaresco Starderi is made from a selection of the best grapes and is aged at least 10 years.
Barbaresco Valeirano is “Complex, profound and elegant” and it also “displays surprising minerality, supported with phenomenal structure. Hints of tea leaf and balsamic notes on the nose and palate recur. The finish is intense, while tannins are noble”. Like the other Barbarescos, we are talking of a niche wine which has an average production of around 7’000 bottles per year that was first produced in 1997.
This awesome estate also crafts very fine white and sweet wines:
Chardonnay Lidia: “Surprising, elegant, mineral”. This wine is dedicated to the Rivetti’s mother, Lidia. With impressive fruit and floral notes, this wine has hints of citrus, golden apple and linden. The palate is clean, fresh and tasty, with remarkable persistence. This is a wine that can benefit from aging. First vintage was 1993 and the average production is around 5’000 bottles.
Moscato d’Asti Bricco Quaglia: “Complex, fragrant, mineral”. Known for being the first single vineyard Italian Moscato, Bricco Quaglia is full of personality. The nose exhibits aromas of peach and sage with delicate honey notes. On the palate it gives a sequence of flavors ranging from fresh fruit to fine herbs, and finally ending with an extremely clean and fresh finish. First vintage was 1977 and the average production is around 110’000 bottles.
