La Spinetta Barbaresco Bordini DOCG 2017
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.
