La Spinetta 'Starderi' vineyard Barbaresco comes from a 6.5 hectare vineyard on the western side of Nieve with a southern exposure. The vines are 45-50 years old and grow on calcareous soil at 270 meters above sea level. Harvest takes place in the first and second week in October, after which time, the grapes are fermented in rotofermenters for 7 to 8 days. The wine then ages for 20-22 months in entirely new, medium-toasted French oak barriques. Malolactic fermentation takes place in the barrique. The 'Starderi' Barbaresco is then aged for another year in bottle before its release. The wine is not filtered of fined. Pairing: Ideal with grilled food, sauced and elaborate red meat and game.

A core of black cherry is accented by eucalyptus, juniper, wild rosemary and stony, chalky notes in this tightly wound red. Offers a firm tannic backbone, offset by plenty of sweet fruit. The long finish indicates potential. Best from 2022 through 2035. 2,500 cases made.

This has dill, minestrone soup, toast and chopped celery aromas. The lean, assertive palate shows oak, raw red fruit and a green note of powdered sage. Grainy tannins leave an astringent finish.
