La Spinetta Barolo Vigneto Garretti 2018
The La Spinetta 2018 Barolo Garretti is underlined by a dark and savory quality that appears throughout this experience. Blackberry and dried cherry give the wine solid grounding and a long-lasting taste profile. Those dark fruit tones are amply surrounded by spice, toasted hazelnut and black truffle.
The 2018 Barolo Vigneto Garretti is a racy, exuberant wine ideal for drinking over the next handful of years. Juicy dark red/purplish berry fruit, lavender, white chocolate, rose petal, spice, tobacco, licorice and a kiss of new oak are front and center. This is a strong showing from La Spinetta in a vintage that was quite challenging.
Station Plaza Wine
A little tight out of the bottle. Needed about 45 min to open. Tobacco, tar, basil and old world earthy notes. Much more Denio's style. I'd be curious to se what he rates this. - K
