TN: 2005 La Spinetta Pin

2005 La Spinetta "Pin"

Deep radiant purple ink color. Rich aromas of meat, molasses, wet black soil and black cherries. Palate has some real depth to it, but it is not appreciably long. Tannins are tart and became very bitter like almonds on a second tasting the next day. My experience with Pins is they need 8-10 years to fully develop but the rich aromatics give me great confidence this one will be a gem in not too distant future.

90 points with anticipated potential.

Revisited a little over a year later.

Very aromatic nose of dark fruit and wet, rich soil. A big, muscular, chewy wine with loads of black cherries, cassis, black olives and molasses. Long finish with sweet tannins.
Just starting to come into it's drinking window and a long life ahead. Fantastic by itself or with pasta, particularly pollo.
70% nebbiolo 30% barbera.

91 points.
