Name:Monferrato Rosso Pin
Type:Red Wine
Varietal:Nebbiolo, Barbera
Producer:La Spinetta
Region:Italy / Asti


Looks like 1-12 years is the perfect age for Pin. Although not an easily identifiable nose, it is a very pleasing one – dusty velvet and leather laced with violets and distant strawberry. Good texture, evolved, but no signs of flab. Sweet, salty and sun-dried fruit flavor stories, some hint of prunes, but not quite that funky. Will finish off the last bottle I have left by the end of the year – no sense in keeping it longer, and I need to free up some room in the storage)).
