la spinetta, barolo, campe riserva 2008
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Barolo Riserva Campe Vursu (Magnum) seems to be the most evolved and nuanced of all of the offering from La Spinetta in tasting. It is a dark and well-saturated red wine that just keeps on giving. As this wine continues to unfold over the next decade, watch for more extraordinary notes of pipe tobacco, cola, licorice and hopefully some retained earthy tones of truffle and herbs. This magnum would be a treasure in any cellar.
The 2008 Barolo Campe (magnum) has aged impeccably. Gracious, silky and perfumed, with striking red berry fruit, the 2008 is in a gorgeous place for drinking now. Readers who own the 2008 in magnum are in for a real treat. The 2008 is floral, lifted and incredibly refined. It is also one of the most complete and alluring wines I have tasted from La Spinetta.
