2017 la spinetta, barolo, campe
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.
The 2017 Barolo Campè is a very pretty, elegant wine. Proprietor Giorgio Rivetti did everything right with the 2017, a wine that is so harmonious in the early going. The Campè is bright, punchy and so expressive. A spine of tannin gives the wine energy and shape, with all the elements so nicely balanced. Another few years in bottle will help immeasurably.
