"The 2012 Barbaresco Bricco Fasét hits the palate with a burst of sweet dark cherry, plum, tobacco, licorice, leather and smoke. Burly and virile in style, the 2012 offers plenty of depth and intensity. I would prefer to give this strapping Barbaresco another few years in bottle to shed some tannin. The Barbaresco Bricco Fasét is a classic La Spinona wine."
"La Spinona’s 2016 Barbaresco Bricco Faset opens with scents of wild black cherry, cloves, licorice, leather, menthol and sage. A dark, mysterious wine, the Bricco Faset has much to offer. Round contours and silky tannins add to its considerable immediacy and overall appeal. This old school-leaning Barbaresco can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring or aged for 7-10 years, maybe more."

"Fragrant aromas of purple flower, herbs and new leather come to the forefront alongside a whiff of tilled earth. Taut and loaded with youthful tension, the delicious, focused palate features juicy red cherry, strawberry compote, star anise and baking spice. Fine-grained tannins lend finesse while bright acidity keeps it balanced and vibrant. Drink 2022–2031. - KERIN O’KEEFE"
