Lots of wood induced sweetness here but also plenty of raw, even green wood. This has the distressing aromas of water-based paint with plenty of baking spices, powdered ginger and green cardamom to make this a real mess. , Opens up with intense fleshy, slightly jammy red raspberry fruit too. A bit dull in the mouth, soft tannins up front, sweet red fruits on the mid-palate, round yet hollow like cheap Grenache and finishing with drying tannins. Pretty fruit with lots wild dark cherry, and spice, tones but neither natural feeling or particularly varietal. Tannins are splintery and really clamp down on the finish, which is short if quite lifesaver cherried. An extracted, modern, anonymous wine that smells bad. 75pts

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.

The villages of Barolo and Barbaresco, nestled in the Langhe hills of Piedmont, produce wines of complexity and power from the Nebbiolo grape. For this elegantly, structured wine, La Spinetta sources grapes from the entire Langhe district. Medium-bodied with fresh berry, leather, and mineral aromas. Concentrated fruit and fine tannins with a lingering berry snap on the finish.

Dense red. Complex, explosive bouquet of fruit, sweet spices, licorice and chocolate. The palate shows thick, concentrated dark berries and licorice, with an exceptional balance of sweet tannins and acidity. Ideal with grilled meats and wild game.

A baby Barolo bargain! Giorgio Rivetti has been acclaimed by Robert Parker and others as a top Barolo producer; we rank him among the top three. This wine, produced from the Nebbiolo grape used in Barolo, shows the same structure as the best Barolos, with fresh berry and leather flavors. The concentrated fruit and fine tannins provide a lingering berry finish that is not to be missed. Open this wine an hour before serving and enjoy it with any hearty meat dish.

La Spinetta’s 2004 Langhe Nebbiolo is a new offering made from the youngest vines in the Starderi vineyard. It presents the characteristic Spinetta qualities — super-ripe fruit, plenty of sweet oak and a sleek personality — in miniature. This tasty offering will also be available at a more accessible price than the estate’s other wines. Anticipated maturity: 2007–2011.
