Why We're Buying

If you know La Spinetta for one thing, it's this Barolo. Campè contains 100% nebbiolo and comes from vines with an average age of 70 years old. The result is a rich and intensely aromatic red wine with assertive tannins and an oaky finish. La Spinetta only releases 7,000 bottles per year, so investing opportunities don't last long.

Rich and complex aromas to this young Barolo with crushed raspberries, blueberries, hot stones and orange juice. Medium to full body, ripe and structured tannins and a vertical, exciting finish. I like the tension here. Delicious now. But two or three years will make it even better.

Wine Enthusiast

This opens with aromas of toasted oak, weedy underbrush, crushed dill and a whiff of camphor. The firm palate is on the lean side, evoking tobacco leaf, star anise, powdered sage, oak and roasted coffee bean but it lacks fruit. Drying astringent tannins grip the close.

Fruit for this wine comes from the highest elevation segment of the vineyard where the crop is deemed most elegant. The 2014 Barolo Campè Vürsù shows depth and complexity with a exciting playlist of small berry, spice and wild herb aromas. Crushed river stone and granite play supporting roles. This Barolo is recognized for its freshness and elegance above all else.
