La Spinetta Barbaresco Starderi 2015

13 units available online.
Product description

Dense red wild cherry coloured. Minerals and an exotic whiff of peach elegant on the nose. Refined and translucent, the 2015 possesses remarkable purity and nuance in its red-toned fruit and floral aromatics, bright citrus and floral notes add the closing flourishes. Ideal with grilled food, sauced and elaborate red meat and game.

95 Points Robert Parker' Wine Advocate... The 2015 Barbaresco Starderi is a wine of towering stature, girth and power. The wine's tannic presence is very evident, and that undeniable structure is broad and underlying. I would suggest putting this bottle aside for at least five more years before popping the cork. The beauty here is that the tannins are integrated and never astringent. Instead, they act like a corset that ties the wine together in all the right places.

91 Points - Wine Spectator    Mint, eucalyptus, juniper, floral, plum and raspberry flavors grace this velvety red. Firm, ending with a dense swath of tannins on the finish. A distinctive style, yet remains complex and long, balanced on the tannic side. Best from 2024 through 2039.
