• Barbaresco "Vigneto Valeirano" DOCG 2016 <br>6 Bottles in OWC

      Barbaresco “Vigneto Valeirano” DOCG 2016 · 6 Bottles in OWC

      The grapes for this exceptional wine come from vineyards 450 metres above sea level in the Neive district. Fine spicy notes, dark berries and wet earth dominate the precise structure and power of this yet very elegant red. Buy, store and indulge in anticipation! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Dark peaches, glazed cherries, Christmas cake, orange peel and wet earth. Full-bodied and very structured on the palate, where chewy tannins carry dried red berries long and spicy." James Suckling

      "Another wine of importance from La Spinetta, this is a well-structured and compact expression with lots of dark fruit and ripe berries buried within. The 2016 Barbaresco Valeirano Vürsù, sporting a fittingly hefty rhinoceros depicted on the front of the bottle, is heavier and denser than the others from this line. There are dry and astringent tannins, and like the pachyderm on the label, this wine will live to a ripe old age—if it isn't poached from the cellar beforehand." Robert Parker

      "The 2016 Barbaresco Vigneto Valeirano is the most refined wine I have tasted from this site in Treiso. The tannins, always forbidding in Valeirano, are wonderfully polished, and yet convey the essential feeling of structure that is such a central part of what makes Barbaresco so compelling as a wine. Dark wild cherry, incense, graphite, spice and dried flowers add shades of dimension to this virile, potent Barbaresco that captures the essence of this site, but with an added touch of sophistication that is quite welcome. I can't wait to see how the 2016 ages. In a word: Superb!" Vinous

    • Barbaresco "Vigneto Gallina" DOCG 2016 <br>6 Bottles in OWC

      Barbaresco “Vigneto Gallina” DOCG 2016 · 6 Bottles in OWC

      A great Barbaresco, destined to long aging: Garnet red, concentrated and powerful the scent of red berries, freshly cut flowers, mint and tobacco. The taste is also bursting with strength and fullness, but still holds a captivating purity, immediacy and elegance, the structure of which is formed by the beautifully integrated tannins. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Dark ruby. Brooding sweet fruit steeped in luxurious, savoury oak. A layer of oak over the compact fruit which is not yet integrated in the whole. Perfumed, long, fruit and oak finish with good acidity shining through. Skilfully done." Jancis Robinson

      "The 2016 Barbaresco Gallina Vürsù is a streamlined wine that brings less to the table in terms of richness but more in terms of intensity and structure. The tannins here are well integrated, and there are some light notes of spice and tobacco, but this beautiful Nebbiolo still has a way to go. This vintage should look forward to aging gracefully." Robert Parker

      "Wow. This is at once a pronounced and vibrant nose, revealing wild strawberries, peaches, freshly picked raspberries, cinnamon, rose petals and stems. I love the steely tannins on the palate, which carve out an iron fist of fruit, but also a generous and velvety texture. Long and intense on the finish." James Suckling

      "Supremely elegant and light on its feet, La Spinetta's 2016 Barbaresco Vigneto Gallina is simply fabulous. Freshly cut flowers, mint, spice and a touch of French oak add nuance to a core of sweet red/purplish berry fruit. Wonderfully supple and racy, the Gallina captures every bit of the potential 2016 had to offer. This is such a gorgeous wine. I can't remember tasting a Gallina here with this much diversity."

    • Barolo "Campè" DOCG 2015 <br>6 Bottles in OWC

      Barolo “Campè" DOCG 2015 · 6 Bottles in OWC

      Barolo Campè has a leading position in the field of his high-calibre competitors almost every year, and not only because of his Etkett, on which a rhinoceros is displayed. Evidence shows that rhinos lived in the game enclosures of the rulers of Rome as early as the second century. Domitian, Commodus and Caracalla owned animals of this species. Exactly the right illustration for this through and through stately wine. In the nose, aromas of flowers and berries, with notes of vanilla and a hint of rosebud, full-bodied and very concentrated, with large, initially tough tannin and a long, powerful finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Mid to deep ruby. Lifted, perfumed and exotic nose with cassis and cherry fruit. Not what you immediately expect from a Barolo. Fragrant cassis palate with fresh acidity and bags of grainy tannins. Long and intriguing, to say the least." Jancis Robinson

      "La Spinetta's 2015 Barolo Campè is one of the wines in this vintage that will drink well right out of the gate. Broad and ample on the palate, the 2015 possesses tremendous textural richness and sheer volume. Black cherry, plum, licorice, spice, menthol and chocolate abound in this inviting Barolo from La Spinetta. The 2015 is decidedly racy and exotic in style, both of which adds to its considerable allure." Antonio Galloni

      "This Barolo has a nice dose of soft spice and an accessible and upfront style. The 2015 Barolo Campè Vürsù is a dark and velvety wine with lots of dark intensity. You could wait for more tertiary aromas to evolve or easily pop this bottle open in a year or two with some braised short ribs." Robert Parker

      "Very distinctive nose with violets and very pure blackcurrants and blueberries, as well as leafy nuances, all of which deliver a fresh impression. The palate has impressive depth and density and the cool, blue fruit at the center sits fresh and vibrant. Smoothly resolved tannins shape a distinguished, balanced and long palate." James Suckling

      Barbaresco “Selezione Tre Vigneti” Riserva DOCG 2007 · 3 MAGNUM-Bottles in OWC

      La Spinettas Riserve of the Barbaresco vineyards Gallina, Starderi and Valeirano are filled only in the best vintages and are sold exclusively in magnum bottles. Here you get all three single layers from the top vintage 2007 in strictly limited 3er wooden box. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A highlight of my Piedmont tasting tour this spring was my visit with Giorgio Rivetti of La Spinetta. We met at the modern Campè winery that is located at the bottom of the next hill over from the historic Castello di Grinzane Cavour, an important landmark for the entire Barolo appellation. Upon my arrival, I was greeted to a long table fitted with an equally long line of wine bottles. I counted 35 of them. It’s a good thing I had built in extra time before my next tasting appointment that day. The La Spinetta wines are truly outstanding. I would especially like to draw your attention to the late-release wines (produced in magnum only) from the 2007 vintage." Robert Parker

      Barbaresco "Vigneto Gallina" Riserva DOCG 2007

      "Only in the best vintages, La Spinetta releases magnum-only editions of its top wines. These wines are generally released ten years after the harvest following additional bottle aging (and one extra year of oak) under the most stringent conditions back at the winery. This year, one of these absolute gems is the 2007 Barbaresco Riserva Gallina (Magnum). I am a huge fan of the sheer elegance produced in this vineyard. This quality has been harnessed to perfection in the case of this wine. It is beautifully evolved, long and silky. Yet, the primary fruit sings loudest of all. This is a delightful achievement."

      Barbaresco "Vigneto Starderi" Riserva DOCG 2007

      "The 2007 Barbaresco Riserva Starderi (Magnum) immediately flaunts the density and important structure that is associated with this celebrated vineyard site. This is an overtly generous and bountiful expression of Nebbiolo that offers thick layers of aromatic intensity. The wine's best asset is the intact and vibrant quality of the primary fruit—so presented now, eleven years after the harvest. This is an expensive bottle for sure, but it does award a delicious and unforgettable experience." Robert Parker

      Barbaresco "Vigneto Valeirano" Riserva DOCG 2007

      "This wine represents a crowning achievement among an elite group of magnum-only delayed releases. The 2007 Barbaresco Riserva Valeirano (Magnum) is nothing short of magnificent. It is intense and articulate in ways you don't expect. Specifically, I am referring to the vibrant and dazzling quality of fruit that is traveling full speed ahead. Nothing about this wine has slowed down. In fact, I would expect this beautiful interpretation to pick up further speed and complexity as it continues its evolution. This wine is old but also new, sweet but also savory and powerful but also elegant. It is a wine of profound contrasts that find impeccable unity despite those inherent contradictions. Congratulations to La Spinetta." Robert Parker
