La Spinetta Nebbiolo 2007
Color: Typical light red of Nebbiolo. Bouquet: Floral and fruity, roses, violet, raspberry and mint. Taste: Minerality, with lingering hints of sage, entices with bright red fruit, fine tannins and stunning elegance, a thoroughly enjoyable Barbaresco. Pairings: Ideal with grilled food, sauced and roasted red meat and wild game.
The nose showed cherry with barnyard, soil and stems. On the palate, it showed a medium body with cherries and wood tones. The finish was long with tealeaves and red berries.
Medium in color and body with intense flavors. I got a spicy note to it, but could not place the specific spice. We had this with a rich, pretty cheesy lasagne and it was terrific. The body and flavor matched very well.

External Reviews for La Spinetta Nebbiolo
Good medium red. Musky aromas of strawberry, tobacco and wild herbs. Sweet and creamy in the mouth, but with good grip and firm acidity to the flavors of strawberry and mint. Not especially deep but aromatic and elegant, and broad on the back end.
