La Spinetta Barolo Vigneto Garretti 2018
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
The 2018 Barolo Garretti is ruby red with hints of ripe black cherries, licorice and violet on the nose. It is structured and full, with balsamic and floral notes. The finish is wide and gentle, with velvety and precise tannins.
This is a solid 2018 with medium to full body, chewy tannins and a fruity, smoky, and nutty finish. Needs time to soften. Best after 2025.
The La Spinetta 2018 Barolo Garretti is underlined by a dark and savory quality that appears throughout this experience. Blackberry and dried cherry give the wine solid grounding and a long-lasting taste profile. Those dark fruit tones are amply surrounded by spice, toasted hazelnut and black truffle.
The 2018 Barolo Vigneto Garretti is a racy, exuberant wine ideal for drinking over the next handful of years. Juicy dark red/purplish berry fruit, lavender, white chocolate, rose petal, spice, tobacco, licorice and a kiss of new oak are front and center. This is a strong showing from La Spinetta in a vintage that was quite challenging.
