La Spinetta Barbaresco Vigneto Bordini 2010

Wine Spectator 91 points – Shows fragrant raspberry, rose, wild herb, spice and tobacco aromas and flavors. Though elegant, this is solidly underlined by tannins. Fine length. Decant.

90% of the work we do at La Spinetta is in the vineyards, with just 10% in the cellar. The vast majority of our efforts at LA SPINETTA are dedicated to the vineyards, which are treated with the utmost care, attention and respect, particularly in regards to agronomic practices and production quantities. We utilize no, or the absolute minimum possible amount of chemicals and maintain a relatively small production (only 17-20 hl (3.1-3.3 tons) per hectare). We appreciate that our vineyards have been in existence long before LA SPINETTA began making wine and we are aware that these same vineyards will outlast us.
