James Suckling (97)- "Black cherries, fresh flowers, rose stems and lavender aromas follow through to full-bodied palate with chewy tannis that are long and intense. Powerful and structured. Give it four or five years to soften. "
Vinous Media (96)- "The 2020 Barbaresco Vigneto Valeirano is a dark, brooding wine. Black cherry, graphite, sage, dried herbs, menthol, licorice and incense infuse the 2020 with tremendous complexity. Powerful but not overdone, the 2020 should evolve well for many years to come."
Wine Advocate (93)- "Showing the estate's rhinoceros design with a blue label, the La Spinetta 2020 Barbaresco Valeirano Vürsù (in a heavy glass bottle) reveals robust aromas of dark fruit, cassis, spice, crushed rose and a heavier fruit note of kirsch or crème de cassis. This is a full-bodied Barbaresco from a hot vintage. It shows rich fruit weight, dusty tannins and good power."
