Winemaker Notes

Fresh, clean, graceful

Delicate and fragrant like the flower from which it takes its name (elderflower), the Moscato Biancospino shows elegant hints of citrus and white flowers. The tasting confirms notes of mandarin, lime, and geranium flowers. With delicious minerality this is a wine that invites you to pour yourself a second glass to be enjoyed.

About La Spinetta Winery

In the beginning of the 1960s, Giuseppe Rivetti, nicknamed ‘Pin’, and his wife, Lidia, were both expert and dedicated farmers with enormous appreciation and knowledge for tradition while keeping a curious interest in the future.

They exemplified humility, respect, as well as ambition. These are the values that still define the philosophy of La Spinetta.

In due course their children CarloBrunoGiorgio, and Giovanna took over the winery reigns. We worked to implement the teachings of our parents. We were taught to have great respect for the territory, for the indigenous vines and for the Piedmontese land.

In 1977 the children, with the support of their parents, began the first production of their Moscatos, Bricco Quaglia and Biancospino. These would be some of the first single-cru Moscato to be produced in Italy.With the success of their Moscato business, we decided to branch out and focus on red grapes. Our first foray was in 1985 with Barbera Ca di Pian.In 1989 Pin was created. Through observation and collaboration with fellow producers, this wine was made with new winemaking ideas and with implementing the latest vineyard and cellar techniques. The plan was to make a wine with international appeal but also one that was deeply linked to the Piedmont territory.

The experience gained through the production of Pin proved to be a valuable tool as we approached Barbaresco. Our first Barbaresco, Gallina was created in 1995, it was followed by Starderi in 1996 and finally Valeirano in 1997. The three Barbarescos are each made exactly the same in the cellar. The wines highlight the unique differences to each individual vineyard.

In 1997, the Gallina Cru began producing the prestigious Barbera d’Alba, which still stands out for its unique characteristics provided by this incredible vineyard and terrain. 1998 was the year for the Barbera d’Asti Superiore Bionzo.  A wine with immense structure and longevity, which is produced from century-old vines.
