La Spinetta

Cà di Pian Barbera d'Asti 2016

Last night we opened the 2016 La Spinetta Ca' DiPian Barbera D'Asti. From Castagnole Lanze, Italy.

On the nose there is strawberry, blackberry, raspberry, black cherry, licorice, spice, violets, vanilla and dried leaves.

On the palate I am getting blackberry, black cherry, plum, licorice, some menthol and it has herbaceous notes.

This wine is medium + to full bodied with medium to medium + acidity and medium + fine grippy tannins that leave you with a medium + to long red and black fruit finish. I hope everyone's new year has started off in a positive way. Please as always stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Tre Vigne Barbera d'Asti 2019

I’m usually a cab or Malbec drinker, so this is a bit thinner and lighter than what I usually go for. Nice flavors, though, and enjoyable — 15 days ago

Bricco Riella Moscato d'Asti 2020

2020. Picked up at the grocery store for $10 on sale because I knew my daughter would love it. She did. Sweet, creamy, slightly frizzante. Made a nice lower abv aperitif. — 12 days ago

Tra La Terra e Il Cielo Barbera d'Asti Barbera 2016

2016. We really liked the way the oak rounded out this wine when compared to the slightly more tart Barbera d’Asti from the same producer that was poured as part of my daughter’s pairing. Paired with the Tajarin dalla forma finished in a wheel of gran kinara cheese. — a month ago

Braida

Montebruna Barbera d'Asti 2016

Still very primary, this wine bursts with life. Vanilla and spice, cherries and cinnamon. Lavender and crushed peppercorns. Razor sharp acidity, smooth tannin. Give it one or two years extra in the cellar. There’s upward potential here. — 7 days ago
