La Spinetta's 2011 Barbaresco Valeirano has come together beautifully over the last year. Deeply spiced and aromatic, the 2011 has begun to flesh out as the tannins have softened. Still, it is too soon for the Valeirano... La Spinetta's 2011 Barbaresco Valeirano has come together beautifully over the last year. Deeply spiced and aromatic, the 2011 has begun to flesh out as the tannins have softened. Still, it is too soon for the Valeirano to deliver all it has. Today, the French oak remains dominant, which makes me think the wine may not have enough stuffing to balance things out. Time will tell.

The rose, cherry, sage and eucalyptus flavors are tinged by licorice and leather here. Though this starts out supple, the tannins finish firm. The fruit persists through the long finish. Best from 2016 through 2025. 580... The rose, cherry, sage and eucalyptus flavors are tinged by licorice and leather here. Though this starts out supple, the tannins finish firm.
