Description

At the top of the class, the 2015 Barolo La Spinetta - Campè red wine is an intense, vibrant ruby red Barolo. On the nose there are aromas of wild cherry, graphite, smoke and leather. The wine is powerful and imposing in the glass, with tremendous textural richness, everything seems amped up in the 2015: aromatics, fruit and acidity. Outstanding - will cellar for 25 to 30 years

"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 centre sits fresh and vibrant. Smoothly resolved tannins shape a distinguished, balanced and long palate." James Suckling

La Spinetta is one of Piedmont’s iconic modern wineries, the history of La Spinetta goes back to 1977 and Giuseppe Rivetti who established the original winery at Castagnole Lanze. Since then it is the second generation, spearheaded by Giorgio Rivetti, that has put La Spinetta on the map with the development of vineyards and estates, talented winemaking and an endless desire to try new things.

The Rivetti family believes passionately in the exclusive use of indigenous grapes and in a style that is individual and distinct from what they see as a globalisation of character and taste. They believe in intensive vineyard work, very low yields (17-20 hl/ha), no use of chemicals, pesticides or fertilizers, extensive green harvesting, and in extremely carefully chosen vineyards.
