James Suckling (92)- "We like the polish to the tannins here with some berry, chocolate and spice aromas and flavors. Medium body. Smoke and bitter lemon on the finish. Drink now."
Wine Advocate (90)- "The La Spinetta 2019 Barbera d'Asti Superiore Ca' di Pian is dark, ripe and very concentrated. The wine offers lifted aromas of black and purple fruits with crushed stone or chalk at the back. The acidity is, of course, very present. There is a point of candied cherry sweetness that rides high on the bouquet. This is a solid food wine."
Vinous Media (90)- "The 2018 Barbera d'Asti Ca' di Pian is plump, juicy and absolutely delicious. Dark cherry, plum, spice and chocolate are all kicked up in this succulent, open-knit Barbera from La Spinetta. Drink it over the next handful of years. As always, the Ca' di Pian overdelivers for the money."
