Tasting Notes: dark cherries, plum, and raspberry, are some of the many fruit notes that wrap around the palate in this fleshy, beautiful resonant barbaresco, in 2012 Starderi is rich and ample with terrific balance and plenty of class

JS93 James Suckling - "A solid wine for the vintage with blueberry, rose-leaf and fresh-herb aromas and flavors. Full body with firm, chewy tannins and a long, structured finish. Needs at least three to four years to soften: Give it time."

V92 Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "The 2012 Barbaresco Vigneto Starderi is the most dense and inward of these wines. Kirsch, menthol, raspberry, orange zest, flowers and white peppers all take shape in the glass, but only with some reluctance. Still, the 2012 looks like a wine that will offer its best drinking over the next handful of years, as it doesn't have the breadth and power of the best Starderis. "


This is undoubtedly the question we get asked most often. This unique animal adorning our bottles catches people's attention, but quite frankly there is no real connection between this animal and LA SPINETTA. The unspectacular truth is that Giorgio Rivetti has always been a great admirer of this celebrated drawing and woodcut by the German artist Albrecht Dürer, and therefore decided to depict the image on the labels of LA SPINETTA's wines. Although there is no LA SPINETTA rhino story, there is certainly a great story behind this particular rhino, which is perhaps why Giorgio fell in love with this artwork. The drawing records the arrival of an Indian rhinoceros in Lisbon, Portugal in 1515. It was the first animal of its kind to be seen in Europe. As a gift from the governor of Portuguese India to the king of Portugal, a fight between a rhino and an elephant was arranged. The story goes that the elephant turned and fled.
