Barbaresco Starderi is produced in a plot of nearly six hectares at an altitude of around 270 metres from vines that are about fifty years old. It is matured in new oak barrels for 20-22 months, then three months in stainless steel vats, with the wine then left to age for another 12 months in the bottle. The wine is then sold, three years after harvesting. The bouquet produces beautiful aromas of red berries (raspberry, cherry) and floral, spicy notes (cinnamon). The palate is well-balanced, meaty and fruity, with attractive tannins and impressive length.
A reputation acquired over a thirty-year period. La Spinetta was founded by Giuseppe and Lidia Rivetti in 1977 in the Moscato d'Asti region. But the Rivettis did not restrict themselves to producing delicious dessert wines. They swiftly diversified into red wines. In 2000, their dream of producing their first Barolo came true. They followed this up by buying vines in the Grinzane Cavour region and built a state-of-the-art cellar – Barolo Campe. In 2001, La Spinetta extend beyond Piedmont with 65 hectares of Tuscan vines between Pisa and Volterra. Rivetti wines supplemented their range with 100% Sangiovese wines and definitively established the family's reputation as one of the leading winemaking families in Italy. All the bottle labels bear an engraving of a rhinoceros by Dürer, making them extremely easy to spot!
