La Spinetta Barbaresco Valeirano 2015

Product description

Dense red sweet dark cherries, cinnamon, new leather and menthol dominating red fruits, rough around the edges and a powerful finish. Ideal with grilled food, sauced and elaborate red meat and game.

95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate    Here is another knock-out Barbaresco from the talented team at La Spinetta. The 2015 Barbaresco Valeirano Vürsù grows quickly in power and volume as it sits in the glass. That fluid evolution adds to the expansive and generous nature of the bouquet. The wine passes through various phases of fruit, spice and delicate herbal intensity. In the mouth, it remains silky and long in resolve and endurance. Despite the heat of the vintage, this edition boasts beautiful softness and ripeness that is never too heavy. 

94 Points - James Suckling    The roses and sandalwood character to these wines are impressive. Lots of ripe fruit too. Full-bodied, chewy and powerful. This needs two or three years to soften. Better in 2021.
