1996 La Spinetta Barbaresco Vigneto Starderi, Piemonte, Italy

Truffles, Forrest and red fruit with a killer mixture, where a high alcohol is present, but it’s so well balanced and delivers and utterly classic pure Barberesco nose. Taste reveals youthful structure – with tannin grip and again a great balance. A pure enjoyment drinking this wine – we immediately ordered a second bottle after the first was ended. (95)

Tasted 18th of May 2005 at the Cagnaught Restaurant in London.
