  • 2008 La Spinetta (Rivetti) Barbera d'Asti Cà di Pian - Italy, Piedmont, Asti, Barbera d'Asti (1/15/2013)
    A delightful little wine. Had this at a restaurant with friends but didn't get a good read on it so picked one up to try at home.

    Bright acidity but not so strong to make it unpleasant without food. Some soft cherry fruit, and tar, perhaps giving the cherry a bit of a burnt sensation. A little tangy. Some pleasant oakiness on the nose that doesn't manifest itself on the palate very much.
