"The 2010 Barbaresco Vigneto Starderi is born in a vineyard that sits at 330 meters above sea level. Giorgio tells me that the challenge here is crafting a wine with both elegance and power. Thanks to ideal growing conditions in 2010, he has succeeded at his task. Firm structure is supported by fleshy fruit tones and elegantly integrated spice. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030."

"Rich and dense, exhibiting cherry, licorice, tar and underbrush aromas and flavors. Intense and sinewy, showing excellent texture, length and personality. Just needs time for the tannins to soften. The most backward of the three La Spinetta crus right now. Best from 2016 through 2025."
