La Spinetta is today one of the most important wineries in Piedmont, a real point of reference for the production of Barolo and Barbaresco. This family-run business was founded in 1977, when Giuseppe Rivetti, known as "Pin", decided to move to the top of the hill of Castagnole Lanze, called La Spinetta, after his marriage. It was here that Giuseppe began to experiment with a traditional sweet wine of Piedmont, Moscato. Since then many strides were made and the focus of production was dedicated to the production of red wines, with the birth of the first Barbareschi in the mid-90s. Since then, the rise of the La Spinetta winery has been continuous, so much so that the great successes led the property to expand beyond the Piedmontese borders, pushing into Tuscany, where 65 hectares between Pisa and Volterra were purchased in 2001. Today La Spinetta is expertly managed by Giorgio, Bruno and Carlo Rivetti, members of a family that has made hard work the secret of its success.

La Spinetta extends over about 100 hectares of vineyards, acquired over time with great care. The vineyards enjoy excellent exposure to the south, south-east and south-west, and the vines are all between 35 and 65 years old, ideal for producing expressive and compact wines. The wines of La Spinetta are made exclusively from indigenous grape varieties, which historically belong to the areas in which they grow and develop. This is a decidedly prudent choice, which aims to enhance the territory, avoiding the uniformity of flavours that is all too often fashionable. Nebbiolo in particular, Barbera and Moscato are therefore the most important grapes, which are cultivated with very low yields and very careful work, because only from an attentive daily care of the vineyard can great wines be created.

And it is indeed of great bottles that we must speak if we take a look at the range of wines produced every year by the La Spinetta winery, where the red wines are the undisputed stars of a production that speaks and recounts the territory in an impeccable manner, bringing to life the most ancient traditions of the Langhe in the light of the most modern technologies. Obviously, one cannot help but fall in love with the different labels dedicated to Barbaresco and Barolo, wines that, in every variation, are able to amaze, always reaching absolute perfection.
