It is evident that this wine is a blend of nebbiolo from Spinetta’s 3 Barbaresco vineyards in Neive . The nose is broad and penetrating, with hints of fresh fruits, violets, and roses. Meanwhile, in the mouth it begins with a soft entrance, followed by gentle but persistent tannins.

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.
