Dark in color and rich in appearance, the 2011 Basbaresco Starderi Vursu is another gorgeous rendition in the La Spinetta Vursu line. Vursu is locale dialect for something that is "greatly desired". And great desire is something you definitely feel when faced with a glass of this stuning wine. This is a rich and sturdy, but beautifully balanced expression that does not hold back in terms of intensity or opulence. Yet the wine never goes overboard. Giorgio Rivetti has produced fantastic results in the 2011 vintage.
