2017 La Spinetta Barbaresco "Bordini"
Ripe, generous and stacked with cherry, raspberry, and rosewater aromas and flavors. Nearly impossible to resist now, but will improve with a few years in the cellar too.
In 2006 Giorgio Rivetti bought 4 hectares (10 acres) plot directly from the last of the Bordini family, who farmed the vineyard for over 300 years. Bordini is located adjacent to the Starderi vineyard on its western corner and it is exclusively plated to the Nebbiolo grape. The vines are 20-25 year old growing in the calcareous soils at 270 meters above sea level (885 feet). Barbresco Brodini ages for 22-24 months in oak yielding and elegant and floral Barbaresco very indicative of the La Spinetta style.
