Intense ruby red.
Bouquet: scents of wild flowers, cherries and plum.
Taste: full bodied, elegant and refined, sweet tannins, balsamic note, fine finish.
La Spinetta wines continue to impress me (this one, Barbera Ca Di Pian 06', Il Nero di Casanova 06'). The initial is very refined with red berries. There are subtle sweet spices that lure you to more complexity at the end. For the price, this is closer to 4.5.
