THE REVIEW

If Barolo is King and Barbaresco is the Queen of Italian wines, then Langhe Nebbiolo is the crown Prince.
    Those who want to experience a sensational single vineyard Barbaresco without the sticker shock should start with the single vineyard Starderi Langhe Nebbiolo from La Spinetta.
    The Starderi Langhe incorporates the younger vines that eventually go into the flaghsip Starderi Barbaresco - however that wine fetches over $150 per bottle.
    To be clear, these are the exact same grapes from the exact vineyard that make up the crown jewel of Spinetta's Barbaresco lineup. The wine over delivers for the money. "It is easily the equal of many Barbarescos." Robert Parker
    Starderi is a gorgeous effort redolent of crushed flowers, spices, menthol and sweet fruit. Raspberries, mint and herbs swirl around in the glass. To that you can add luscious aromas of black cherry, cassis, truffles and mint as well as plum, and tobacco. Made in a fullbodied style, it offers outstanding poise and balance with an inviting, fresh finish.
    This Italian red offers a great chance to enjoy the wonders of Barbaresco at an everyday price. Pair with roasted lamb, cheeses, sliced salami, grilled meats, and duck. Enjoy now and over the next 5-7 years!Read More »
