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."
Vinous Media (90)- "La Spinetta's 2015 Langhe Nebbiolo is mostly young-vine fruit from Starderi. Racy and layered, the 2015 offers a beguiling mix of bright red cherry fruit and floral, spiced, minty notes that add perfume. I would prefer to drink this pretty, expressive Langhe Nebbiolo over the next handful of years."
Wine Spectator (90)- "Aromatic and exotic, exuding floral, raspberry, licorice and medicinal herb aromas and flavors. Firm, yet balanced and lingering on the finish. This needs air, so decant two to three hours ahead of drinking. Drink now through 2023."
