Packaged with the distinctive rhinoceros label (in blue), the La Spinetta 2019 Barbaresco Valeirano Vürsù has some ripeness and softness that is expressed with blackberry, plum and sweet spice. The wine is structured and full-bodied, but it also shows integrated tannins that support the wine in a firm but effortless manner.
La Spinetta
Bruno, Carlo, and Giorgio Rivetti are the three brothers behind the legendary La Spinetta estate. Founded in 1977 by their parents, Giuseppe and Lidia, the family has built a super modern Italian winery, producing an exceptional collection of wines from Piedmont and Tuscany. Their original estate can be found in Castagnole Lanza, which still produces delicate Moscato d’Astis. The Rivettis were actually the first to produce single-vineyard Moscato wines, Bricco Quaglia and Biancospino. Since then the La Spinetta has grown to include a state-of-the-art cellar in Grinzan Cavour, entitled Campè, which focuses on red wine production. The family also expanded beyond the borders of Piedmont in 2001, with the purchase of the Casanova vineyards in Tuscany. Here, there are three different 100% Sangiovese wines in production. And lastly, in 2011 the brothers added yet another winery to their already impressive three estates, with the acquisition of Italy’s oldest Metodo Classico sparkling wine producer, Contratto, in Canelli. They also began to produce Vermouths and Bitters. Each of their locations use state-of-the-art equipment, and follow meticulous vinification procedures, producing a wide range of wines that are opulent and richly textured with a modern-styled flair.
