Description

La Spinetta Barbera d’Asti Cà di Pian comes from vines with an average age of 40 years, grown on calcareous marl soils at an altitude of 300m in Castagnole delle Lanze, Costigliole d’Asti and Montegrosso d’Asti. Maceration and alcoholic fermentation in temperature-controlled vats for an average period of nine days. Malolactic fermentation takes place in used French oak barrels (part new), where the wine is aged for 13 months. It’s then aged in bottle for at least another three months prior to release. It’s violet-red in colour and shows hints of red fruits, herbs and wild violets. It’s extremely elegant and balanced on the palate, with fresh and powerful flavours. There are intense aromas of blackberry and morello cherries. This wine is truly captivating, yet it remains fresh and extremely versatile. – La Spinetta

Wines of Piedmont

In the North-Western corner of Italy, with a backdrop of the visually stunning Alps, Piedmont is a great place to visit for wine tourism. It is also home to some of the most sought-after wines in the country.

Nebbiolo is the region’s most prestigious grape variety, a red variety not seen much in Australia. Wines made from this grape are powerful with remarkably high levels of tannins but a balancing acidity. The Piedmont region offers the grapes with a reliable autumn fog that provides a cooling effect which is particularly beneficial to the growth of Nebbiolo. This pre-harvest fog (“nebbia” in Italian) is actually where the grape’s name comes from. The fog is vital in that it prolongs the time spent on the vine and allows the grapes to achieve full ripeness.

The most famous examples of Nebbiolo come from the appellations (subregions) of Barolo and Barbaresco, known for their ability to age well, firm tannins and distinct smell of tar and roses. Barolo is a big tannic expression of Nebbiolo, while Barbaresco only about 15km away makes a more elegant style. Barolo wines are generally the more expensive of the two and are known to cellar for decades.

By volume however, Barbera is the most planted red grape in Piedmont. This grape makes a juicy, low tannin but high acidity easy-going red. Perhaps somewhat like a lighter style Shiraz.

While there are quite a few white varieties planted in the region, the most notable is Moscato d’Asti, made in a sparkling style in the Asti subregion.
