The Valeirano Barbaresco DOCG by La Spinetta presents itself with a dark cherry red and an almost exotic bouquet in the glass. Rather, this is reminiscent of a barolo with notes of truffle and marzipan. Furthermore, it reveals wonderful fruit notes of dark berries.
This Nebbiolo is concentrated on the palate, lush and present with the aromas of dried currants and berries. Fine tannins and mineral charges lead into its long finale.

After harvesting the grapes, alcoholic fermentation takes place for 7 to 8 days, followed by malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels lasting about 20 to 22 months.

No filtration or clarification takes place before filling.
