La Spinetta Barolo Vursu Vigneto Campe 2013
JS96: "Intense aromas of sweet tobacco, strawberries and light meat. Full body, soft and silky tannins and a beautiful finish. So much fruit here. Drink in 2019."
WS94: “A sinewy red, with a tight grain to the dense tannins supporting cherry, raspberry, Szechuan peppercorn and tobacco flavors in the right proportions. Fine length. Opens up with air, but this will be better in several years.”
La Spinetta is owned by Giorgio Rivetti, who has become one of the leading forces in Piedmont. His magic touch produces a vast array of great wines, all inimitably approachable with great style. In the spring of 2000, The Rivetti family acquired the Campé vineyard which produces exceptionally low yields of extremely high-quality fruit. This full-bodied Barolo has soft, silky tannins and is loaded with fruit.
