La Spinetta Barolo Campe 2013
100% Nebbiolo from Campè the vineyard surrounding La Spinetta's winery in Grinzane Cavour. It's a 3.5ha south-facing site on calcareous soils, and the vines have an average age of about 55 years. It's farmed sustainably, with no chemical hebicides or pesticides. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled rotofermenters and lasts between six and seven days. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in oak, where the wine is aged for 24 months. From these new, medium toast French oak vessels it's transferred to stainless steel vats for nine months before bottling with no fining or filtration. It is then rested for a further 12 months in bottle before release four years after the harvest.
James Suckling – Lots of flowers, stem and berry character on the nose. It’s full body, with chewy tannins and a long, long finish. Big and powerful for the vintage. Needs at least five years of bottle age. Try in 2019.
In a mixed or straight case: $250.79
