La Spinetta Barolo Vigneto Campè Vürsù 2006

$180

Ripe raspberry, currant and eucalyptus aromas and flavors signal this firmly structured red. I like the fruit component here, but the tannins are burly and leave an astringent feel and bitter aftertaste. Best from 2015 through 2030.

Summary

Grape

Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo originated in Piedmont in Italy, where it remains the region's most important red grape. Its name comes from the Italian word nebbia, which means fog, a feature of the hills where the grape traditionally grows. Nebbiolo is thick-skinned, early-budding and late-ripening; it needs long periods of sunshine to ripen fully and is often planted on south- or southwest-facing hillsides for maximum exposure. The best examples come from calcareous marl vineyards, with some planted in sandy soils.
