La Spinetta Barolo Garretti 2016

Product description
A typical light red of Nebbiolo chewy and rich Barolo with dried mushroom, berry and hazelnut character full body, round and silky tannins and a long and flavorful finish, layered and complex.

94 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate... This entry-level Barolo is made with fruit from the younger vines from the Garretti cru in Grinzane Cavour, in the comune where La Spinetta has its ultra modern winery. The 2016 Barolo Vigneto Garretti offers a generous and accessible personality that makes this wine optimal for near or medium-term drinking. The bouquet is layered and rich with dark fruit, liquorice, tar and toasted aniseed. The tannins are nicely managed in this vintage, showing both power and elegance.

94 Points James Suckling... A full-bodied red with classic aromas of sour cherries, dried leaves, dried orange peel and tar. Juicy and mouthwatering on the palate with plenty of refreshing citrus zest, framed by firm, tight tannins. Big wine. Drink after 2023.
