PIEDMONT
PIEDMONT - the King of Vino Italiano
 

Located in the far north-west of Italy, Piedmont sits at the foot of the Western Alps – the name Piemonte means 'the foot of the mountains' – which forms its border with France and Switzerland. It is the home of more DOCG wines than any other Italian region. Nearly 84% of all the areas wine production fall under a DOC/G designation. The area has no IGT classification. 

The well-known and respected names in Piedmont are Barolo and Barbaresco. Nebbiolo wines are known for their tar and roses bouquet, and the cellaring potential. The Barbera grape is the most widely planted variety in all of the Piedmont and makes a juicy, muscular red wine that is not as tannic as Barolo and Barbaresco.

About La Spinetta

Nominated Winery of the Year 2001 by Gambero Rosso

In 1977 the family took up residence at La Spinetta - meaning “top of the hill", in Castagnole Lanze, located in the heart of the area well-known for Moscato d’Asti, a rather light and simple dessert wine at the time. The Rivetti's believed, however, that Moscato had the potential for greatness and set out to prove it by producing the region's first single-vineyard Moscato wines, Bricco Quaglia and Biancospino. And so, the first Moscato produced, the first single-vineyard Moscato ever to be made in Italy. Since 1990s, La Spinatta has developed wine portfolio with the great Barbaresco and Barolo.


 
“One of Italy’s most fashionable winemakers/proprietors, Giorgio Rivetti displays a masterful touch whether he is making Barbera, Moscato d’Asti, or his proprietary red wine Pin." 
– Robert Parker, Jr.
 
From Moscato to Nebbiolo to Sangiovese, whatever Giorgio touches turns to gold. His pioneering single-vineyard Barberas and Barbera/Nebbiolo blend “Pin” are considered to be the best of the Langhe. La Spinetta wines are among Italy’s most celebrated, as the winery has attained the coveted Tre Bicchieri award for more than 30 of their wines throughout their relatively short career.
