La Spinetta Pin 2006
Dark red color. Luscious and complex aromas of plum, red cherry, and raspberry. Gentle mint flavor, silky texture, and persistent finish, yet very elegant.
65% Nebbiolo, 35% Barbera d'Asti Superiore Bionzo. 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.
