Wine Advocate (94)- "This is a special wine made from late-harvest Moscato grapes aged in French barrique for eight long years. The La Spinetta 2011 Piemonte Moscato Passito Oro (with only 1,000 500-milliliter bottles produced) opens to a dark golden color with polished copper or amber highlights. The perfumes are bright and intense, but interestingly, this aged Moscato shows a lot of herbal notes with dried rosemary and sage on top of honey, dried flowers and candied orange peel. The wine maintains its acidity, but it also shows thick layers of generous sweetness and richness."
Wine Spectator (90)- "Intense aromas of apricot, caramel, grapefruit and clove define this lively dessert white. Luscious and balanced, with a lingering finish. Drink now. 316 cases made."
Wine Spectator (92)- "A sweet Moscato that balances richness with lively acidity, framing dried apricot, dried fig, ginger and white pepper notes. Concentrated and well-defined, with a lingering aftertaste of honey, dried fruit and spice. Drink now through 2020. 316 cases made. "
