La Spinetta "Ca' di Pian" Barbera d'Asti
Eventually though the family’s vision was even grander. In 1985 La Spinetta made its first red wine, Barbera Cà di Pian. After this many great reds followed: In 1989 the Rivettis dedicated their red blend Pin to their father. From 1995 to 1998 they started to make their first Barbaresco Gallina, Barbarescos Starderi, Barbera d'Alba Gallina, Barbaresco Valeirano, and the Barbera d'Asti Superiore. In 2000 the family began making a Barolo and built a state of the art cellar, Barolo Campè.
Ruby red in color with purple reflections, this wine offers aromas of blueberry, wet earth and a hint of orange peel. On the palate, it is full-bodied with bright acidity and lots of intensity, but also balanced and silky -- an ultra-fine Barbera that combines richness with finesse.
