La Spinetta Ca di Pian Barbera d' Asti 2004 (Piemonte)

Powerful, oaky barbera from La Spinetta. Co-owner Giorgio Rivetti's heavyhandedness is evident in this dense, ruby-red hued wine. Its nose is full with dark cherry, violets and plum. Fruity, but burdensome. For my tastes, more wine than it needs to be.
