2015 La Spinetta Barbaresco "Starderi"
Made from 50-year-old vines, this Barbaresco is fruity and spicy, full-bodied, with a fine amount of tannins. One of the most elegant and expressive Barbarescos you can find. 2015 is singing. An ideal wine with risottos, red meat or small game.
"The 2015 Barbaresco Starderi rounds out this series of Barbarescos from La Spinetta in grand style. I don't think the Starderi has ever been so elegant or refined as it is in 2015. Medium in body and translucent, the 2015 possesses remarkable purity and nuance in its red-toned fruit and floral aromatics. The oak needs time to fully integrate, but readers should not be planning on opening bottles anytime soon, as the youthful tannins are also imposing. Bright citrus and floral notes add the closing flourishes."- Antonio Galloni, 95 points
