Barbaresco, La Spinetta, Vignetto Gallina, Piedmont, Italy, 1998
£40 per 125ml glass. Current wine list price - £305.00.
I have selected one of the greatest examples of Nebbiolo. 1998 is always regarded as a great vintage in Italy. Nebbiolo is a very delicate grape variety, and developing in this wine are some ripe dark cherries, blackcurrant and cooked strawberries followed by a touch of violet showing a soft and feminine palate.
The palate shows a very good concentration and ripeness of the fruits with some silky tannin, a hint of chocolate and sweet spices as well as a very long and well balanced finish.
Please reserve your glass with reception before 7pm on Friday 15th & Saturday 16th August 2014.
