James Suckling (91)- "Lots of nutmeg and floral aromas to the red fruits. Medium body. Chewy texture. Fresh at the finish. Some bitter lemon and mahogany. Drink now."
James Suckling (90)- "Fresh and floral with cherries and nuts on the nose and palate. Medium to light body. Crisp finish. Drink now."
Wine Advocate (91)- "Giorgio Rivetti is very proud of this wine and his work in this classic, slightly cool vintage. The La Spinetta 2018 Langhe Nebbiolo offers dark tones and bright fruit definition with forest berry, wild rose and cedar wood. I actually tasted some ripeness and softness in this wine, which adds to its immediate and universal appeal. You could pair a wine like this with a wide range of foods, from pasta to breaded veal. Fruit comes from the youngest plants in the Starderi vineyard (in Barbaresco), and the wine is aged in barrique."
