"A tasty, entry-level wine, the 2013 Barbera d'Asti Ca' di Pian is juicy and flamboyant from the very first taste. Blackberry jam, crème de cassis, chocolate, violets, lavender and sweet spice meld together in a deep, unctuous wine to drink now and over the next few years. This is a screaming value from La Spinetta. -- Antonio Galloni"
La Spinetta Barbera Ca di Pian comes from younger vine Barbera grown in two sites: Castagnole and Costigliole where the Bionzo vineyard is located. The vineyards together are about 23 hectares. The vines are 6-20 years old and grow on calcareous soil at 300 meters above sea level, at a southern exposure. Harvest usually happens in the last week September to early October, after which time, the grapes are fermented in rotofermenters for 6 to 7 days. The wine then ages for 12 months in a mix of new and old, medium toasted, French oak barrique. Malolactic fermentation takes place in the barrique. The Ca di Pian Barbera is aged for another two months in bottle before its release.
Barberra de Asti - Great wine for the price. Have paid twice as much before. Well balanced with fruit an tannins.
