La Spinetta

Founded in 1977 in the Piedmont region, La Spinetta is a family-run wine proudcer that mixes modern techniques with old world tradition. It is also one of Italy’s most admired, innovative and modern wineries. It has won 34 prestigious Three Glass awards in 22 years from Italy’s best-known wine journal, Gambero Rosso. Only Gaja has won more. La Spinetta is owned by brothers Carlo, Bruno and Giorgio Rivetti, and Giorgio is also head winemaker. The producer now has three properties, two in Piedmont and one in Tuscany, and owns a total of 412 acres of vineyards. La Spinetta produces nearly 650,000 bottles a year, of which about 30% is Moscato, 24% is Sangiovese, 22% is Barbera, 10% is Pin (a blend of Nebbiolo and Barbera). The remainder of the production is Barolo, Barbera and Chardonnay. Reviewers are invariably impressed with the Barolos, Barberas and Barbarescos, and typically describe them using such terms as “ravishing” and “gorgeous.”
