Food Pairings for La Spinetta Pin Monferrato Rosso
The '04 "Pin", from La Spinetta REALLY benefitted from a half hour decant. The bled of Barbera & Nebbiolo, as mentioned elsewhere, truly is a "Super Piedmont". The structure of the Nebbiolo lends finesse to an aggressive and prominent display of both fruit and ever-evolving complexity. In truth; I felt like my old friend Nebbiolo was tutoring me concerning the finer note, aspects, and properties of some happily grown, rich, thick & intense Barbera. I still haven't been able to come up with a score on this one- but it paired damn well with a Gyro & some Moussaka. Wicked-good composition with opulent & macerated red fruits are followed by a fresh (and delicious) dark-cherried finish. ...Early 90's, easily.
