La Spinetta Langhe Nebbiolo 2006
Warm with perfect tannins, great elegance, yet round with a fine finish—delicious. Pair with grilled and elaborated red meat or wild game.
100% Nebbiolo. La Spinetta (meaning "top of the hill") has been owned and managed by the Rivetti family since 1977. In 1977 Giuseppe (nicknamed "Pin") Rivetti and his wife, Lidia, took up residence at La Spinetta in Castagnole Lanze, located in the heart of the area well-known for moscato d'Asti, a rather light and simple dessert wine at the time. The Rivetti's believed, however, that moscato had the potential for greatness and set out to prove it by producing the region's first single-vineyard moscato wines, Bricco Quaglia and Biancospino.
