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."
Wine Advocate (93+)- "Pin is dedicated to Giuseppe, father of the Rivetti siblings Carlo, Bruno, Giorgio and Giovanna. The La Spinetta 2015 Monferrato Rosso Pin is a blend of 65% Nebbiolo and 35% Barbera. The Barbera comes from the Bionzo vineyard, meanwhile the Nebbiolo represents a selection from old vines in Castagnole Lanze. This is a lovely blend of Piedmont's great red grapes that delivers freshness and bright intensity. Bold cherry and cassis rise to the top, followed by light spice and smoke from barrique aging. The balance between those two grapes, one that adds exuberance and one that adds elegance, is terrific."
Vinous Media (92)- "The 2015 Monferrato Rosso Pin (Nebbiolo/Barbera) is nicely lifted in the glass. Supple and silky on the palate, with lovely aromatic presence, the Pin is a joy to taste today. Stylistically, Pin is quite a bit more finessed than it was in its early days. Despite its easy approachability, the 2015 has enough structure to develop nicely in the cellar for a number of years."
