Cellar for up to 15 years. Decant 1 hour before serving.

La Spinetta winery was founded in 1977 by Giuseppe Rivetti, or “Pin” as his family call him, in Castagnole Lanze which at the time was best known for its sweet and simple Moscato d’Asti wines. Over the past few decades the Rivetti family have proven that the region is also capable of making serious wines from other local grape varieties like Nebbiolo and Barbera.

In 2000 the family purchased top quality land in Grinzane Cavour in the Barolo appellation where they built their Barolo Campe winery. This Barolo is crafted from the younger vines on that estate which still have an impressive average age of 30 years. Created in an accessible, fresher style that their Campe Barolo, the grapes for this wine are harvested in mid-October to ensure optimal ripeness. Following vinification the young wine is aged in 50% new and 50% used French oak barrels for 20 months. The wine then spends a further 12 months ageing in the bottle before release.

Fragrant tobacco leaf, dried rose petals, dark berries and licorice define the nose while the palate offers firm tannins, a well-built structure and intense dark cherry and plum notes which linger on the tongue. The power and bold flavour profile of this wine make it a great match for roasted and barbecued red meats, although it can also be cellared for at least another decade.
