ABOUT THE WINE


La Spinetta is a family-owned winery located in the Piedmont region of northwest Italy. The winery was founded in 1977 by Giuseppe and Lidia Rivetti, and today it is run by their three sons: Carlo, Bruno, and Giorgio. La Spinetta's vineyards cover a total of 165 hectares, with most of the vines located in the Langhe area. The winery produces a wide range of wines, including Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera d'Alba, Moscato d'Asti, and various white wines.
In 1996, La Spinetta acquired the Starderi vineyard, which is located on the hills just behind those of Gallina. Despite the two vineyards being geographically in the vicinity of one another, they hold very distinct characteristics which are determined by the crucial differences in microclimate, exposure and terrain. The Tanaro river, which flows at the bottom of the valley, affects the climate by mitigating both the extreme winters and the drastic hot summers. Starderi always produces wines which express a rich character while maintaining great elegance. This difference is pronounced in the aromas: Starderi shows mainly hints of red berries and ripe fruit.
