Description

La Spinetta Barbaresco Bordini DOCG 2018

100% Nebbiolo.
Fresh, elegant and seductive. This bottle of La Spinetta Barbaresco Bordini has an explosion of fresh perfumes, with raspberry and rose nuances. The red fruit flavours are well integrated with aromatic, light and delicate aromas. This bouquet is full-bodied, with fine and dense tannins, that winds down to a long finish.


Tip #1: Good wines are worth the wait, open this beautiful red after 2023.
Tip #2: Best served in a burgundy glass

Maceration and alcoholic fermentation were carried out in temperature-controlled vats for an average period of 14-15 days. Malolactic fermentation was done in used (2nd passage) French oak barrels, followed by 20 months of aging. Finally, the bottle aged for another 6 months.
The Bordini vineyard was chosen specifically for its well-allocated exposure and composition of the soil, which is particularly sandy. These distinct factors offer a lighter, more delicate and wonderfully aromatic nuance to the wine.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES



Really beautiful 2017 Barbaresco with ripe cherry, orange peel and light chocolate at the end. It’s full-bodied, tight and focused with a long, flavorful finish. Give it some time to come together. Try after 2023.

nThis red is marked by a mix of juniper, eucalyptus and thyme flavors, with bright black currant and bilberry fruit. The initial suppleness is replaced by dense, dusty tannins as this winds down on the long finish. Best from 2023 through 2039.
