Wine Details

La Spinetta Barbaresco Starderi DOCG

The Starderi represents another top Barbaresco wine in the La Spinetta line-up, from the Starderi vineyard in Nieve. Elegant, refined aromatics of red-toned fruit, flowers and mint integrate with firm acidity and serious tannins, providing a sound structural backbone to the wine. Aged in new, medium-toast French barriques, the oak will fully integrate with time, as will the youthful tannins. This is a sophisticated and concentrated Barbaresco whose bright citrus and floral notes add a finishing touch and give something to look forward to.

Recent press reviews


La Spinetta Barbaresco Starderi DOCG 2020

Vinous Media (96)- "The 2020 Barbaresco Vigneto Starderi turned out beautifully. Bright and focused, with tremendous purity, the 2020 impresses from the very first taste. Crushed flowers, sweet, red-toned fruit, mint, blood orange and bright saline notes race across the palate."


La Spinetta Barbaresco Starderi DOCG 2020

James Suckling (95)- "Very floral with both fresh and dried flowers on the nose as well as cherries and hibiscus with some sliced strawberries. Medium to full body, with well-integrated tannins and a long and focused finish. Give this three or four years to come together. "


La Spinetta Barbaresco Starderi DOCG 2020

Wine Advocate (93)- "With the red label, the La Spinetta 2020 Barbaresco Starderi Vürsù shows dark fruit, dried cherry and tarry smoke. There is a savory side to Starderi, and the wine delivers extra density and concentration to the finish. Like some of the other expressions from the warm 2020 growing season, this wine is more immediate overall, making it good for near and medium-term drinking. But it should also age nicely, should you decide to take that route."
