Ratings and Reviews

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Like La Spinetta's other wines from this vintage, the 2011 Barolo Vigneto Garretti opens to pretty balsam or medicinal herb aromas with eucalyptus oil, mint, dried ginger and cherry cola. These aromas give the wine a bright and buoyant sense of weightlessness. After a few minutes, heavier aromas of spice, toasted nut and tobacco begin to appear. The mouthfeel is firm and silky." - Monica Larner (29th Jun 2016) )

93 Points - James Suckling:
"A dense and chewy red with blueberry, cherry, plum and mahogany character. Savory and earthy too. Similar character on the palate. Spicy and decadent. Better in 2018." - April 13, 2015

91 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Savory and aromatic, this red evokes wild rosemary, juniper, sage, plum, cherry and underbrush flavors. Turns muscular on the long finish. Decant now or cellar short-term. Best from 2018 through 2029. 700 cases made." - BS (Dec 31, 2015)

91 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media:
"La Spinetta's 2011 Barolo Garretti is soft, sensual and inviting. Sweet red berries, raspberries, flowers, mint and spices are all laced together in a supple, silky Barolo with tons of near-term appeal. The Garretti has more than enough depth - and the barrels are neutral - for the purity of the fruit to come through loud and clear. The Garretti emerges from the lower slopes of La Spinetta's estate vineyard in Grinzane Cavour." - Antonio Galloni (Sep 2014)
