Wine Advocate (93)- "The La Spinetta 2018 Barolo Garretti is underlined by a dark and savory quality that appears throughout this experience. Blackberry and dried cherry give the wine solid grounding and a long-lasting taste profile. Those dark fruit tones are amply surrounded by spice, toasted hazelnut and black truffle."
Vinous Media (92)- "The 2018 Barolo Vigneto Garretti is a racy, exuberant wine ideal for drinking over the next handful of years. Juicy dark red/purplish berry fruit, lavender, white chocolate, rose petal, spice, tobacco, licorice and a kiss of new oak are front and center. This is a strong showing from La Spinetta in a vintage that was quite challenging."
Wine Advocate (93)- "With a lion on its front label to represent Barolo, the "King of Wines," the La Spinetta 2017 Barolo Garretti is a wine of depth, dark fruit and concentration. This vintage delivers power and lots of momentum that you feel in the weight of the fruit, the aromatic intensity and the structure. The wine's alcohol measures 14.5%, and that, too, contributes to the overall brawn and muscle. This production appears very youthful and still nervous, so put it aside in your cellar for best results."
