Wine Advocate (93)- "The 2016 Monferrato Rosso Pin is a blend of mostly Nebbiolo with some Barbera in a supporting role. The wine offers lots of cherry and a distinctive mineral note of crushed aspirin or chalk. Those two sides of the wine, the sweetness of the fruit and that dryness, work nicely together to build the aromatic profile of this elegant production."
James Suckling (93)- "Dried-fruit, meat and citrus aromas follow through to a full body with chewy tannins that are focused and intense. This needs time to open and soften. Try after 2023."
Vinous Media (92)- "The 2016 Monferrato Rosso Pin (Nebbiolo, Barbera) is bright, floral and vibrant. Crushed rose petal, mint, spice and lavender all open in the glass. The 2016 is a rich, structured wine that balances density with energy. Pin is the wine that made La Spinetta`s reputation in the early days and remains a flagship. The blend is 65% Nebbiolo from Bordini and 35% Barbera from Bionzo."
