2015 La Spinona Barolo Cru Bergera - 92 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"The 2015 Barolo Bergera is raw and driving in feel, but also surprisingly accessible given its natural intensity. Spice, dried rose petal, red cherry, mint and orange peel give this burly Barolo a good deal of aromatic and flavor complexity. The Bergera is not an easy wine, but rather a Barolo in which the various elements push and pull against each other. Even so, it is undeniably attractive and certainly full of character. - Antonio Galloni"

2015 La Spinona Barolo Cru Bergera - 93 PTS - WE

wine enthusiast 93 pts"Aromas of scorched earth, camphor, grilled herb and leather lead the nose, along with a whiff of iris. The tightly knit, rather austere palate offers dried cherry, cassis, star anise and a hint of game set against assertive, close-grained tannins that grip the close. - KERIN O’KEEFE"

james suckling hq logo plain"This is a dense, serious red with dried-strawberry, orange-peel and walnut character on the nose and palate. Full body and firm, chewy tannins that are polished and refined at the same time. This needs time to soften, but I like the sleek, linear path in the center palate. Drink after 2023."

2016 La Spinona Barolo Cru Bergera - 92 PTS - JS

james suckling hq logo plain"A full-bodied, well balanced and well structured Barolo with plenty of character, from rich red forest fruit, kumquat peel and sweet tobacco to a hint of balsamic. Quite firm, finishing with spicy cedar. Tempting now, but have patience. Best in 2022."

2016 La Spinona Barolo Cru Bergera - 94 PTS - WE

wine enthusiast 94 pts"Underbrush, violet and new leather aromas come to the forefront on this fragrant red. The bright, linear, elegantly structured palate offers pomegranate, cranberry and star anise framed in taut, fine-grained tannins. It has an almost salty finish. Drink 2026–2036. - KERIN O’KEEFE"
