External Reviews for La Spinetta Barbaresco Starderi Ris
The masculine and brooding 2001 Barbaresco Starderi is unquestionably the most complex and complete of the La Spinetta Barbarescos. The wine is dark and deeply expressive, with a huge palate of dark roasted fruit, tar, spices, licorice and a lingering note of menthol. Despite its size and notable concentration the Starderi appears to be a bit more accessible than the Valeirano at the moment. This is modern-style Barbaresco at its best. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2016.
Good full red. Spicy aromas of red berries, tobacco and peppermint. Rich, fat and vinous, with lovely generosity of flavor and balance. Offers a compelling three-dimensional texture and complex inner-mouth perfume. Finishes more backward than the Gallina, with a more obvious tannic spine.
The 2001 Barbaresco Starderi, from a vineyard in Neive, is, as always, the most powerful of the group, very penetrating on the nose with aromas of tar, licorice, chocolate, and truffles, potent and intense in flavor but very textured and caressing as well, a wine of truly superior balance and class which will still be drinking well between 2018 and 2020.
