La Spinetta Barolo Vigneto Garretti 2011
Wine AdvocateLike La Spinetta's other wines from this vintage, the 2011 Barolo Vigneto Garretti opens to pretty balsam or medicinal herb aromas with eucalyptus oil, mint, dried ginger and cherry cola. These aromas give the wine a bright and buoyant sense of weightlessness. After a few minutes, heavier aromas of spice, toasted nut and tobacco begin to appear. The mouthfeel is firm and silky.
Wine Spectator Savory and aromatic, this red evokes wild rosemary, juniper, sage, plum, cherry and underbrush flavors. Turns muscular on the long finish. Decant now or cellar short-term. Best from 2018 through 2029. 700 cases made.
All sizes are 750mL unless otherwise noted.
