It is Thursday night and tonight the wine I have opened is the 2016 La Spinetta Ca' Di Pian Barbera d' Asti.
On the nose is black cherry, plum, strawberry, incense, violets, anise and earth.
On the palate there is cherry, strawberry, plum, anise, dried leaves, baking spices and wet earth.
This wine is medium to full bodied fresh clean in the mouth with medium + acidity and medium to medium+ fine mouth filling grippy tannins tha gives into a long fresh fruit earthy finish. I hope everyone's week has been a good one and let's look to the weekend to refresh. Please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 4 days ago

Nose has moist alpine hay, fresh sage, lime wedge, quince, fresh fennel, wet granite sand and a light natural wine vibe with vinegar notes likely derived from a little skin contact action.
Palate initially has zoomy acidity like biting directly into a lime, but it expands to Jasmin honey, over-ripe Bosc pear, light woody notes, chewy moist chalk textures with a dry-ish finish seeming to run out endlessly. Wow, this wine has me floored with quality, what an experience!
1500 bottles produced.
Cork pulled for slow oxidation 8H, then decanted 2H, more bottle time appreciated. 2023+ — a month ago

Bursts out of the glass, very fresh, fruity & joyful, with dark berries, cherries, a flowery note and a touch of graphite.
On the palate this is very juicy, with fresh red fruit, a dash of cherry. The acidity lively, the tannins crunchy.
This is such a joy to drink right now, but there’s some depth to it as well. And so food friendly.
Brilliant value, too! No wonder it sold out so quickly. — 20 days ago
