    July 25, 2019 - 樱桃、蔓越莓、水蜜桃,甜香料和些微罗勒气息,轻飘飘的果味和重橡木桶带来的工艺香气仿佛来自南北两极。入口酸度明显,集中度不足,尽管五六个小时后单宁强度逐渐明显,并迅速占据口中的主角位置,但柔顺度一般,导致口中的冲撞感过于强烈,抵消了层次复杂度带来的愉悦感。89/100

    给这款酒评分的时候,我已经告诫自己要摒弃对这家酒庄的成见,但在这个杂谈环节,我忍不住要说:喝过的次数越多,我越不想再碰到这家酒庄的任何一款Nebbiolo.就是这样。

    April 14, 2019 - Fully agree with TIG78 below. Certainly read for business and may improve even further with time. Fantastic effort.

    August 22, 2018 - Won't rate this wine until I try the second bottle. For me the wine seemed off putting but others said no. It seemed to have a great deal of petrol on the nose and pallete. Several aromatic experiences but nothing persistent to warrant the accolades. Time will tell.

    June 17, 2018 - The '10 La Spinetta Barolo Garretti was one of the most exciting wines I tasted 5 years ago as the 2010 barolo vintage started hitting the market. At the time, I had limited experience and understanding of traditional techniques vs modern. While the Barolo Garretti is modern in style and I strongly prefer Barolo made in a way that showcases the typical characteristics of nebbiolo, I still very much enjoyed this wine for what it is. Surprisingly open for business, the Garretti showed aromas of fresh rose and strawberries. On the palate, there was an impressive finesse with fine tannins and well-integrated oak. It's hard to tell if this is the peak or if further improvement will come, and I look forward to finding out.

    December 17, 2016 - Like being at a party and seeing a woman across the room for the very first time, standing there with friends, and she’s got it all. Fully body and sweet floral perfume with spicy sandalwood accents sweep you off your feet. Once introduced, the taste of ripe raspberry and dried cherry are obvious. But far more exotic notes lurk beneath her velvety soft skin (12 days worth) as you discover unexpected flavors of orange peel, fresh leather and minty Old Spice. A mouthfeel so round and smooth you feel a bit lightheaded. You may wonder about that Leone, but tell yourself just be courageous. Such balance and amazing grace, her rich fine tannins seem almost unreal at the finish of your conversation that night. Later, you realize this may just have been the Barolo of your dreams. What comes next could be your destiny. Buy now, hold through the mid ‘20s .... or until death do you part.
