Exuding power and beauty at this age. Need another 5-8 years to integrate and to show the graceful side befitting of the label.
From the lesser know commune of Grinzane Cavour, the ‘09 spent 24 months in French oak barrels, 70% new.

Nice, don't see enough La Spinetta posted. We have a few mid-2000 Barbaresco & Baroli. We had a dinner where I sat next to Giorgio Rivetti, he's several barrels of fun!

Envy @Severn Goodwin ! I can’t even start to imagine what the conversation must be like.

Vürsù Vigneto Gallina Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2013

Quite deep ruby , wide terracotta rim . Lighter and more elegant on the nose than the Starderi, porcini , lighter floral and slightly medicinal notes . On the palate rounder generous red fruits , with touch of liquorice , slightly medicinal notes . Quite sweet tannins , and refreshing acidity , good liquorice stained length. This too would benefit from a little more time 3-5 years perhaps , and will last well a further decade — 13 days ago

VIgneto Brunate Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

Lovely! Craves food. A tad tannic by itself until it has had time to open in the glass. Went excellent with the pizza at our favorite spot. — 2 months ago
