2017 La Spinetta Barolo Campe
2017 La Spinetta Barolo Campe, Barolo DOCG, Italy
The Barolo Campè of la Spinetta winery is a harmonious and complex red wine produced entirely with Nebbiolo grapes grown in the hills of the municipality of Grinzane Cavour.
This Barolo in the glass shows a beautiful ruby red color and in the nose it develops complex and aromatic aromas with hints of black cherry, licorice and spices. Characterized by an excellent structure, the taste is floral and fruity, with notes of violet, rose petals and black cherry. From the harmonious and tannic finish, the Barolo Campè of la Spinetta winery is perfect to drink in combination with traditional Piedmontese courses such as handmade tajarin with meat sauce or roasted or braised red meats.
Nebbiolo is the grape variety behind the top-quality red wines of Piedmont, northwestern Italy, the most notable of which are Barolo and Barbaresco. Nebbiolo wines are distinguished by their strong tannins, high acidity and distinctive scent – often described as “tar and roses”. A less obvious characteristic, visible only over time, is their tendency to lose color. Within just a few years of vintage, most Nebbiolo wines begin fading from deep, violet-tinged ruby to a beautiful brick orange.
Barolo is a traditional hillside village in the rolling hills of Piedmont, northwestern Italy. The vineyards and cantine (wineries) there have long been famous for producing some of Italy’s very finest red wines – predominantly from the region’s signature grape variety, Nebbiolo. Fragrant, tannic Barolo wine is so revered that it was one of just three wines awarded DOCG status on the day that the classification was introduced in July 1980 (the other two were Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano).
La Spinetta is an Italian wine producer making wines predominantly in Piedmont. It is particularly known for its single-vineyard Barbaresco wines and the Barolo Campe, plus an innovative blend of Nebbiolo and Barbera called Pin. These wines are known for their ripe, voluptuous style, and can be drunk young or aged for many years.
