      Barolo “Campè" Riserva DOCG 2009 · MAGNUM in OWC

      La Spinetta's Riserva from the Barolo single vineyard Campé is filled only in the best vintages and is sold exclusively in Magnum bottles. From the 2009 vintage, 600 bottles were filled. SUPERIORE.DE

      "An homage to Barolo, the so-called "king of wines," this magnum features a lion on its front label instead of the estate's trademark rhinoceros. The La Spinetta 2009 Barolo Riserva Campè Vürsù (Magnum) is a rare and precious wine with only 600 magnums in existence. Its sheer power roars from within, thanks to a long series of dark and variety-driven aromas. Dried cherry, blackberry, tilled earth, black licorice, exotic spice and campfire ash play leading roles. This vintage also presents balsamic tones of cola, dried ginger and grilled rosemary. It wraps thickly over the palate with integrated tannins and rich textural support." Robert Parker

      "The 2009 Barolo Riserva Campè emerges from the upper blocks at La Spinetta's estate vineyard in Grinzane Cavour and is bottled only in magnum. A rich, ample wine, the 2009 has aged beautifully. Sweet red cherry, cinnamon, white chocolate and flowers are some of the notes that build in the glass. The 2009 has volume, persistence and a good deal of freshness to match. Tasted today, eleven years after the vintage, the 2009 clearly harkens back to a time when the wines were more marked by French oak than they are today. Readers who can look past that will find a sweeping, grand, modern-style Barolo that hits all the right notes. Even though the oak imprint is a bit strong in some vintages of this era, Giorgio Rivetti's wines have proven to age very well. Tasted a day after the opening, the 2009 has lost none of its allure."

    • Barolo "Campè" DOCG 2016 <br>6 Bottles in OWC

      Barolo “Campè" DOCG 2016 · 6 Bottles in OWC

      Barolo Campè is ahead of its top-class competitors almost every year. On the nose, the bouquet has aromas of flowers and berries, with notes of vanilla and a hint of rosebud, full-bodied and very concentrated, with large, initially tough tannins and a long, powerful final. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The Campè vineyard is above Garretti in Grinzane Cavour. La Spinetta's 2016 Barolo Campè Vürsù draws its fruit from the upper part of the vineyard where the topsoils are shallow and the vines are oldest, aged 70+ years. Fruit comes from a three-hectare site with beautiful southern exposures. This beautiful wine opens to a velvety and dark appearance with dark garnet highlights. To the nose, it produces dark primary fruit with dried blackberry and plum, but you also get savory notes of spice, tar and dried licorice root. The wine shows a firm backbone, but the tannins are nicely tucked into the greater fiber and power of the mouthfeel." Robert Parker

      "The 2016 Barolo Campè is superb. Dark, potent and powerful, the 2016 possesses tremendous intensity to match its dark, virile personality. More than anything else, in 2016 the Campè offers a captivating interplay of fruit and structure. The 2016 is not a shy wine; rather it is rich and hedonistic to the core, while maintaining a striking sense of translucence. Black cherry, chocolate, espresso, licorice and clove all build into the huge finish. In a word: Superb. In 2016 Giorgio Rivetti and his team made a Barolo with a sense of classicism I have never seen before to this degree in a La Spinetta wine." Vinous

      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
